Charles Libby was probably the most famous Spokane photographer, the Eastern Washington Historical Society has most of his collection. Bells was probably a phone company, but none of the Arthur Nelsons was working for the phone company in 1929.
The big photo is taken at Chas A Libby, Granite Blk Spokane. Is he a wellknown photogafer in Spokane? I think it is Arthur Olson and he was an engeneer at Bells Company. Was there a Bells Company in Spokane at that time (1930--)? Arthur had a brother, Harold or Herald, and he was born in NY 1909. In 1930 Census Gustaf,Anna, Arthur and Harold lived in Brooklyn NY. I´m sorry I don´t have more information at this time. If you look on My page there are some more photos.
I checked the 1929 Spokane City Directory and it lists 2 Arthur Olsons and one Harold Olson, and three Harry Olsons, no wives on any of them, so can you give me more information to narrow in on the correct one?
Hello Charles Hansen
I am Morgan and I´m from Sweden . I have a problem with one of my ancester who I think maybe lived in Spokane in the 1930th. His name was Arthur Olson or maybe Harold Olson and was an engineer at Bells company in NY as he moved to Spokane. He was born 1904 in NY and his parents was Gustaf and Anna Olson. I have 2 photos of him in Spokane. Do you think you can help me finding him and maybe what´s happen him in Spokane.
