Just stumbled across some great photos of Mercer Island in the early 1900’s:
“These photos are taken from an old family photo album, which I found at an estate sale in Bellevue, Washington many years ago. My husband grew up on Mercer Island, and we have found the photos of the island particularly interesting.”
Struggling with an addiction to local history as I do, seeing these photos made me feel lightheaded and woozy. I had to sit down for a minute.
Thanks very much to Denise, the website author, who carefully put the entire album online. I love the Internet.
If you’ve got a hankering to binge on more, check out the Vintage Seattle blog. It’s a 120-proof local history microbrew of guilty pleasure.
