I love that rustic bench on the right side of the porch. (Click on the image to enlarge it.)
George Geisendorfer opened a resort at Cascadia Springs in 1896, offering what he called the “curative powers” of the local mineral spring water. The resort included a hotel, garden, croquet course, tennis courts, and bowling alley. After the hotel burned, the 300-acre property was acquired by the state of Oregon and is now the site of Cascadia State Park.

The children are members of a local 4-H club, making a WWI victory garden. I think this is the Portland home (and children) of W.R. and Elizabeth Bridges. W.R. was a proofreader for The Oregonian.
