General NotesThe approach to W. S. Bowman's photography studio. There is a raised ramp, with "Photographs" painted on it, and the studio is also raised on stilts, since it is built on the edge of a river bank. The wooden building has a false front with "Bowman Photographer" painted at the top, and is surrounded on at least two sides by a narrow porch. On the porch are a chair and a bench. The front door is open and a low chair can be seen within. Between the two front windows and the door hangs a board displaying portrait photographs. On the left a canvas awning hangs over wooden steps , and a lower wooden shed can be seen. Trees and another building can be seen in the background.
TCI NotesAn outside photograph of a building front. This building was Walter Bowman's photo studio, which is on Main Street in Pendleton, Oregon. "Bowman Photographer" is painted on top of the building. On the walkway from the front of the building to the front of the camera is a walkway with the words "Photographs" painted on the boards. The front door is open and next to the door is a board with photographs on the board. In the left of the photograph is the Umatilla River.
