|Title||Lake Union houseboats damaged by storm, Seattle, October 21, 1945 |
|Caption||A sudden southwest gale with gusts up to 52 mph hit Seattle on October 21, 1945. The storm blew down power poles and set ships and houseboats adrift. On Lake Union, two houseboats were torn from their moorings and battered against a log boom near the Seattle Gas Company's Northlake Avenue plant.|
This photo, taken during the October 1945 storm, shows one of the Lake Union houseboats being pounded by waves near Seattle's city gasworks.
