Jan 26, 2011: Historic Hood Canal

Posted by Adam James on December 05, 2014 2 Comments

We found all these shots at the Mason County Historical Society's museum in downtown Shelton. They've been donated to the Museum by various old-time families over the years... and they show snippets of what life was like on Hood Canal from the late 1880's to the early 1950's.

Wow! Really love some of those shots! Especially the view from the water with the Olympics in the background! Really makes me homesick now!
