[font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]In 1849, Dr. Robert Orville Tripp, a dentist, arrived in Woodside, CA to recuperate from an illness, and stayed to establish a business and a home. He and his friend, M.A. Parkhurst went into the lumber business in partnership with some San Francisco builders. They opened a direct road from the redwood forests to the head of the tidewater in Redwood Creek -- now the heart of Redwood City. The lumber was dragged by oxen teams over this road and floated by raft to San Francisco. By 1855, there were at least eight sawmills and one shingle mill in Woodside. As the lower hills were timbered out, the mills were moved up the canyons and over the hills.[/font]

[font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Meanwhile, Dr. Tripp and Parkhurst had opened the Woodside Store on King's Mountain Road, which is now preserved as a San Mateo County museum. He continued his practice of dentistry, and in 1851 was elected a supervisor of San Mateo County. Until his death in 1909, Dr. Tripp operated the store with a post office serving customers from as far away as San Mateo and Half Moon Bay.

    The full door shot seems kinda plain, not sure what you were going for, but I love the rest of them. And particularly the shot of the BMW :-).

    Oh, I get it, the door isn't square. Cool.

    I don't think that door has been opened in 50 years. In fact, there's no lock in it. :)
