This is the time of year where our thoughts turn to family and celebration. As we ask our neighbor to feed the cat, stop the mail for a week, pack our cars for a trip over the mountains, or head towards the airport it’s easy to forget the challenges of travel in the early days of our state’s history.
With winter travel in mind we’ve compiled photographs from the collection; pictures of snowy travel by sleigh, train and automobile. So if you get caught up in traffic snarls or flight delays on your travels remember how comparatively easy you have it.
Washington Rural Heritage is a collection of historic photographs from around the state. The Washington Rural Heritage Program helps small libraries and museums digitize their historic photo and archival collections. It is also a digital archive for Washingtonians, with more than 300 family photo collections included in the website/database. Each picture in the collection tells a unique story. Think about taking time over the holidays to explore and lose yourself in these images of early Washington.
