Hayward Farm


Hayward Farm


A farmhouse and barn in Hayward, Oregon circa 1910-1914. As of the 2020s, the house is still standing at the address 53363 NW Hayward Road, Banks, Oregon. In this image, a sign for "Hayward Farm" is displayed prominently on the barn. A windmill, fences, various outbuildings, and a large field appear around the house, while a tall, thick forest of Douglas Fir lies in the background. Hayward is a small community in the Coast Range about 6 miles WNW of Banks, Oregon. This photograph was taken by amateur photographer William Alonso Clapshaw, possibly from a vantage point in Hayward Cemetery. Clapshaw exposed half of a glass plate negative to create this image. The other half of the glass plate was used to make a portrait of a child; see image PUA_MS154_007b. Flaws in the photograph are due to dust and deterioration of the emulsion layer on the negative.
This is one image from a set of glass plate negatives created by William Alonso Clapshaw. Clapshaw was a clerk and shopkeeper who lived near Forest Grove, Oregon for most of his life. He was born in 1880, probably at the family's home in the Hillside neighborhood of Forest Grove, on what is now Clapshaw Hill Road east of Gales Creek. Around 1910-1914, William took an interest in photography and created a set of glass plate negatives documenting scenes near his family's lands as well as images of himself, his friends and family members. He most likely used a silver gelatin dry plate process. The photographs were donated to the Pacific University Archives in 2023.
