|Title||Fishing boat Caroline in Ballard locks, Seattle, 1938 |
|Caption||Ever since the Lake Washington Ship Canal opened in 1917, work and pleasure boats have used it to travel between Puget Sound and Lake Washington. For years, there was no easy or cheap way to move logs, coal, and other resources directly from the east side of Lake Washington to Elliott Bay. The Hiram Chittenden Locks allow boats and ships from Lake Union and Lake Washington to be lowered to the level of Puget Sound. Those traveling the other way are raised to the level of the lakes. In addition, the canal's locks at Ballard became a regular Seattle tourist attraction.|
This 1938 photo shows a fishing boat going through the Ballard locks.
|Notes||Handwritten on negative: S.S. Caroline.|
Handwritten on sleeve: Ships - "Caroline."
