Throwback Thursday: Transport of yesteryear

The My Ballard team wanted to look back on the different types of transport featured in the neighborhood over the years.


The Anderson Tugboat Company operated at the foot of 20th Ave NW. The above photo, taken in 1900, shows the Anderson boat dock (with residence above and business below) with three vessels at the dock.


The #624 street car seen travelling to Ballard Beach in 1910, thought to be taken on the corner of NW 65th St and 32nd Ave NW.
