One vendor at the Fremont Sunday Market (It’s a small blogosphere.) had a set of photo albums from an estate sale. April 1981 was a busy month for someone who visited “Bangkok, Hong Kong, The Nixon Library, Jeddah & Taif Arabia, and the Au Hadda Purchasing Dept.”

John posted a photo of a carving like this last year. He found it in Tukwila. This one is at the Daybreak Star Cultural Center in Discovery Park. They were originally part of a building that stretched between Union and University on Fourth Avenue.
