|Title||Men repairing toys at Salvation Army, Seattle, 1937 |
|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.|
In this December 1937 photo, two men repair toys in a Salvation Army workshop in Seattle. During that Depression year, Seattle and King County Salvation Army workers ran a Girls' Club, six meeting halls, two workshops and a store which sold second hand goods.
