It’s no secret that Ballard has been in a near constant state of change in recent years, and the neighborhood that people knew even 10 years ago is far different than the one of today. But what about the Ballard of 100 years ago? This week’s Throwback Thursday takes a look at some images of the Ballard of 1914.
The black and white photo below, taken in 1914, shows the Woodland General Hospital, a large Victorian style, multi-story building with pitched roof, turret, and covered porch. The building may have been located on Main Street, near Lincoln High School.
The black and white photo below, taken in 1914, shows the nine women members of the Al Siesta group. In the background is a painted backdrop of a forest.
The black and white photo below, taken on March 20, 1914, shows Ballard and the Ballard Railroad Bridge.
Finally, the two black and white photos below, taken in 1914, show the construction of the Ballard Locks.
