|Title||Snoqualmie Falls, near Snoqualmie, ca. 1950 |
|Date||ca. 1950 |
|Caption||The Snoqualmie River drops 268 feet at Snoqualmie Falls. The waterfall was spiritually important to the Snoqualmie people who once lived in the area and was a scenic wonder to the settlers who came later. After the Seattle, Lake Shore and Eastern Railroad was built along the south shore in 1889, the falls became a popular place for day trips from Seattle. |

Postmarked August 7, 1950, from Tacoma; one-cent stamp.
