Jan 26, 2011: Historic Hood Canal

News from Here

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.
