Does anyone have any that they could share? I'd love to see what people come up with.

This isn't exactly what you're looking for but I thought I'd share some links. I was reading about the history of Woodinville a while back and found mention of "Norm's Resort" on Cottage Lake. I searched it and just started reading what came up which, if you have the time, you can find all kinds of things about the history of Seattle and how laughably young it is. When you see these old photos and realize just a hundred years ago this was mostly mud and logging, you have to appreciate how much has changed and how quickly.

I got this HistoryLink.org- the Free Online Encyclopedia of Washington State History

which led to this HistoryLink.org- the Free Online Encyclopedia of Washington State History and there are several slide shows plus assorted links to the history of Seattle and Washington (although enlarging the photos doesn't seem an easy option).

I also found this A History of Cottage Lake - Around Town - Woodinville, WA Patch

which led to this Woodinville Heritage Society and the beginning of Woodinville
Early Woodinville History | Woodinville Heritage Society

where a couple from towed their belongings across Lake Washington, up Sammamish River where their home became the post office, school, Sunday school, etc. before the railway years later.

During the 50th anniversary of Seattle World's Fair last year there were a lot of photos and specials about that time in the early '60s which really was a Seattle world debut of sorts and many posted memories here of attending that fair.

A good source is Paul Dorpat, he has written a column in the Seattle Times for years. He also has a website: Seattle Now & Then

Although it hasn't been updated since last year another good source is vintageseattle.org


Last one for now is this thread I started here on C-D a few years back: 1970's Seattle
