A varied collection of historic photographs that depict marine activity up and down Puget Sound, to the coastal waters of Washington State, including portions of the lower Columbia River. The subject matter is varied and includes images of wooden shipbuilding, ferryboats and ferry landings, tug boats, marine fisheries, vessels of the Mosquito Fleet, unusual marine vessels, and more. These images have been selected for their uniqueness, so as not to duplicate photos that have been seen in previous publications. Examples of this can be seen in the collection of tug boat images such as Petrel, Hero, Trio, Violet, and Chema. Other examples include early car ferries such as Elk, Mount Vernon, Washington, Washington of Kirkland, City of Vancouver, and Airline. Also included are vessels of the Puget Sound Mosquito Fleet, such as Thurow, Whidby, Carlisle II, Alverene, Osage, Edison, Butcher, and others. Don’t miss the chapter on unusual marine vessels such as Target II, Ark, Ramona, Snohomish, Wigwam II, Sylph, Fort Jackson, and Pronto. There is also a chapter on marine fisheries with images of a codfish plant at Anacortes, oyster picking on Willapa Bay, whale processing plant at Westport, or salmon canneries at Richardson on Lopez Island. Also a chapter on the ports of Stella, Deep River, Knappton, Skamokawa, Dewatto, Tracyton, Rosedale, and Spring Beach. In short, the reader will find historic images and information on a diverse collection of Northwest Marine images.
