Title

1900s c. Moore Family at Grandpa Moore's in the Soap Creek Valley

Description

This early 1900s photograph shows the Moore family in the front yard of Grandpa Moore's Soap Creek Valley ranch home. The image is from a collection of images scanned in from 4"x5" glass plate negatives that were donated to the Soap Creek Valley schoolhouse in 1980 accompanied with handwritten notes by Myra Moore Lauridsen. The images seem to be from around the early 1900s. According to Myra, this is an image showing “The Moore family at grandpa Moores (I think aunts & uncles too)." Although this image dates nearly 40 years after Letitia moved from the Soap Creek Valley, it paints a portrait of the life of Soap Creek Valley settlers in a time period similar to, adjacent to Letitia's. The surrounding land and lifestyle mirror what David and Letitia experienced during their time in the valley, giving us an idea of what life would have been like for them when photographs were too new to have captured Benton County, Oregon.
