This extremely detailed photo of Oregon's capitol is recreated from the original glass negative, created by Sunset Magazine (and Southern Pacific Railroad) photographer Howard C. Tibbits. Used to creating very sharp landscape images, Tibbits had some of the best equipment available at the time.

You can see how good it was by clicking on detail views 1 and 2. At the time this photograph was taken, the capitol building was 32 years old, having been completed in 1876. It would last another 27 before it was destroyed by fire in 1935.

-- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
