|Title||Salvation Army worker Ruth Clarke with two men, Seattle, May 1940 |
|Caption||In 1887, Salvation Army Captains Alfred and Lizzie Harris arrived in Seattle. Starting with only $20.00 in their pockets, the couple opened a hall in the basement of a saloon and started their ministry to the homeless and hungry. Over a century later, the Salvation Army continues its work among the needy in Seattle and King County, providing food, shelter, health services, counseling and spiritual support.|
This May 1940 photo shows Ruth Clarke, a Salvation Army worker, and two unidentified men outside the group's mission at 213 Second Avenue South, near Pioneer Square. In 1940, Salvation Army workers ran seven halls in Seattle.
