Salvaged structural pine for pergola / other

The neighbor is tearing down his garage and we salvaged a bunch of the structural members that were holding up the second floor living space. 2 x 12's.
The houses around here were built between 1920 and 1940, but I'm quite sure that that section of the garage was built more around the 60s.
I was wondering if anybody could identify what type of pine this is, and chime in as to its usability for projects / repurpose.
I actually like to use it to build my pergola, and just treat it with stain and waterproofing. Same as we did the deck.
With more information and answers about more details out. As for now, I'm just curious as to what kind of pine it is. Some of it is extremely beautiful and I was thinking of making some tabletops with it.
