A note of provenance taped to the inside of the book reads, “April 22, 1960. This album of original charcoal drawings was donated to the Oregon Historical Society by Dr. O. S. Driskell, D.D.S. Portland, Oregon. His aunt Miss Alice E. Wilson visited beach resorts for many years just prior to the turn of the century. Her pictures are quite authentic and readily identified by older residents.
