1929: “The D. Perry Evanses. Once upon a time, Mr. and Mrs. D. Perry Evans, of Portland, Oregon, decided to build them a new home and having made their first million determined it should be worthy of a photographer; reared in edifice on the cliffs of that wonderful Sound. Eighteen rooms no less. It as a great and glorious feeling to wander hand in hand through those marble halls, look out of the plate glass windows and see Nature in her most picturesque aspects. But! Make it two buts. Eighteen rooms is a great number and two busy people who spend their happiest hours in the studio cannot get eighteen rooms worth of pleasure out of such a mansion for long. It was being maintained for the servants. That house was sold, to advantage, and the D. Perry Evanses are building, or by this time have built, a nine room house with the best and latest and find they can see as much out of windows, enjoy life as well and find plenty of space to live after business hours in the ample half portion of too much.” Camera Craft, August 1929, pg. 392.
