Located by the world’s largest ocean and the Pacific Rim, Washington has a long history of shipping and shipbuilding.

Washington probably has had shipbuilders since its territorial days and these cool State Archives photos show images from early in the last century. These shots feature a Vancouver shipyard around 1920. They are the second  of three Archives Treasure for August; a reader poll will appear after the third blog appears. Watch for it.
