Throwback Thursday: Ballard Locks in 1920

The My Ballard team have jumped on the Throwback Thursday bandwagon to showcase some amazing photos of the Ballard we know and love back in the day.

This week’s Throwback Thursday post brings you a photo of Ballard Locks in 1920. In the black and white photo below you can see  S.S. Haraison Maru – a Japanese Freighter passing through the Large Locks while a family observe from the side lines.
