A vintage early 20th century photography of a dirt road bordered by thick vegetation, with hand coloring applied to the trees and elsewhere, signed and blind stamped at lower right by the noted pioneering Oregon coastal photographer, FRANK WOODFIELD (1879-1955). The piece measures 9" by 11" in its circa 1920's frame. A little internet research reveals that this is by an Astoria, Oregon-born entrepreneur who was introduced to photography in 1910 by one Elmer Alan Coe. Soon Woodfield's natural aptitude and entrepreneurial talents led to a thriving business in post cards and photographs of the developing Oregon coast. His wife Irta was artistically talented and she may have been the individual who colored this. Condition of vintage frame and photo is excellent.
