|Title||Burke & Farrar Building, Kirkland, 1925 |
|Photographer||Webster & Stevens |
|Caption||Kirkland's early hopes for prosperity died with the economic depression of the 1890s and the failure of the Great Western Iron & Steel Company. In 1910, Burke & Farrar, a Seattle real estate company, bought up the vacant lots and began to promote the area for homes and businesses. By 1925, the firm had a large office in the heart of Kirkland.|
This 1925 photo shows the Burke & Farrar Building at the northeast corner of Kirkland Avenue and Lake Street in downtown Kirkland. A large electric sign on top of the building greets the passengers arriving by ferry; the landing is out of sight at the lower left.
