Comments

Pre-1914. "View of Requa taken from Big Fire's yard." Middle building of three in line is "Pioneer Hotel." #33-#38 all have the same type of printing on the back of the postal. #37 and #38 bear postmark of 1912, JAN 16 and APR 12, respectively. This part of Requa burned in the 1914 fire (Notebook VI:154) so postal shot must pre-date that event. Photographer unknown. The Big Fire family of Requa was the other often mentioned Indian family other than the Mahatches and the Gensaws. They lived in an "old Indian house," according to Ralph Hughes, as this shot shows, on the uphill side of the street.
