Are you a cancer survivor? Survivors can register online for the Survivor’s Lap prior to this year’s Grays Harbor Relay For Life and East County Relay by going to relayforlifeofgraysharbor.org or relayforlifeofeastgraysharbor.org, clicking on “join” and filling out the form.

Looking Back — Entrance to Aberdeen

This westward view of Highway 12 was taken in February of 1931, just east of Aberdeen. The road curves toward Sargent Blvd where it continued into town. Work on excavating the bluff and building the road as it travels today was just beginning.

Looking Back — South Aberdeen

This photo was taken in 1930 at the corner of Boone and Curtis in South Aberdeen looking west toward the Westport highway. Where the boys are sitting is now an empty lot. The buildings next to them in the left foreground are now the location of a Timberland Bank branch. On the right, those buildings eventually made way for a wider roadway next to Swanson’s.

Looking Back — Stuck in the mud

A AA Star Transfer truck with a broken front axle is stuck in deeply rutted mud out in the woods in 1929. There’s no explanation with the photo as to why it was out there (or why the photographer was there). Other than the three men trying to jack it up, there doesn’t appear to be any other assistance in getting it out — if indeed it did get out.
