Here at My Ballard we love the history of our special neighborhood as much as our readers do and we thought it was high time that we had a weekly post dedicated to it.
So, we jumped on the Throwback Thursday bandwagon to bring you images and stories from a past Ballard before the condos, fast food chains and Ballard Ave hot spots.
Speaking of Ballard Ave, this week we are sharing a photo of Ballard’s favorite Ave back in 1900. The photo below shows the South looking view of Ballard Ave where you can see a few businesses including Ballard Wine Home and W.D. Beg Groceries, Fruit and Provisions. Wonder if they had Happy Hour?
Do you have an historical photo or a story that readers would enjoy hearing about? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with Throwback Thursday in the subject line.
