About this collection

Images from Bellingham, photographer and pharmacist H.C. Engberg, including striking scenes of Mt. Baker and surrounding area. Original images are housed at the Center for Pacific Northwest Studies.

Henry Engberg was the owner of a Bellingham area pharmacy, Engberg Drug Co. Many of the photographic postcards included in the collection are labeled “ Engberg Pharmacy” or “ Engberg photo.” HenryEngberg's son Paul also took some of the pictures in this collection. The accompanying notes indicate that Paul was very interested in snow conditions and landslides in the Mount Baker region, and may have used this collection for a meteorology study.

The collection consists of photographic postcard prints and nitrate negatives of hiking trips, mostly to Mt. Baker, made by the Engberg family and their friends. The collection contains views of various mountain summits and glaciers, as well as photographs of the hikers.
