Photo NumberPH037_P291
NotesA group of individuals pose next to a covered wagon. The man seated with his legs crossed in a wooden chair with hat, beard, and spectacles was identified as Ezra Meeker. Draped on the wagon is a banner reading, in part, "The Old Oregon Trail Monument Expedition". Seated in the front of the wagon are a woman and dog. A man stands in front of the wagon next to a team of two oxen. Behind the oxen is a pitched canvas tent. A man holding a small book is seated next to Ezra. In the background are trees, and a partial view of a dwelling. A typed label on the back of the mounted print reads, "Historic #557 Ezra Meeker and covered wagon in residence section, Portland, 1908. Multnomah Co."
