|Title||Rose Garden at Woodland Park, Seattle, June 1950 |
|Caption||In 1924, Seattle Civic Rose Garden at Woodland Park opened with the purpose of providing a free, public display of roses suitable for Seattle's climate. The Rose Garden's reputation grew steadily and in 1947 it was selected to become a nationally recognized All-America Rose Selections test site, a designation it retained until 2010. Here, people stroll through the displays of blooms on a sunny day. |
