Throwback Thursday: Ballard Railroad Bridge in the 1930s

Posted by Danielle Anthony-Goodwin on March 13th, 2014

It’s that time of the week again where we take a look back at “old” Ballard in our weekly Throwback Thursday post.

This week we are sharing a photo of Ballard Railroad Bridge before Shilshole was completed back in the 1930s.

According to information from the Seattle Municiple Archives, in the 1930s Shilshole Ave was described as “dirty, dusty and disgraceful” in The Ballard News. A few things have changed since then…

Do you have an historical photo or a story that readers would enjoy hearing about? Email us at tips@myballard.com with Throwback Thursday in the subject line.
