For many, the past week already has been busy and memorable, thanks to holiday-related shopping and family get-togethers, and, of course, the Seahawks pummeling the 49ers on national TV to clinch a playoff spot. And, depending on whether you cheer for the UW or WSU, you either were bummed or delighted that the Huskies lost a nail-biter to Boise State in the Las Vegas Bowl.
If all of the recent pigskin and yuletide action hasn’t worn you out, here is something else to keep you busy, at least for a moment. It’s our monthly Archives treasures online poll in which we feature three rare, interesting or cool items found in the State Archives.
The December contenders are:
The first Territorial Supreme Court case
Telegrams sent by the U.S. War Department to Gov. Langlie soon after the Pearl Harbor attack in December 1941
Washington railroad maps from the 1880s to 1980s
Take a moment to review the three candidates and then vote for your favorite. The online poll closes Jan. 4, so make sure to vote!
