Gallery

Welcome to the Index Historical Society gallery, showing samples of photos on view at our museum. Many of our¬†images came directly from Dorothy Pickett, wife of the photographer Lee Pickett whose negatives she gave to the University of Washington Allen Library Special Collections. Much of that collection is online through the library. A great number of our photos have come from residents’¬†family albums. Exhibits change each year, and in addition we offer viewing of our full collection on the museum’s public-access computer.

    Hello,

    I have a turn of the century photo I think is of the Granite Quarry. My greatgrandfather worked there sometime from 1895 to 1910. I would love to try to send you a jpg and see if you have ever seen the photo. It is large and studio taken by a Darius Kinnsey from Seattle. Looks like a company employee picture.

    Thanks
