Looking Back — Market Street

Looking east down Market Street from Michigan Street in 1906 is a much different view than it is today. Both the roadway and the sidewalks are wood planks over swampy ground and there are “bridges” connecting the road to the walkways at several stopping places.

Looking Back — Harbor golfers

In celebration of the US Open being played in the Pacific Northwest for the first time here’s a picture of several golfers from the Aberdeen Elks Lodge in 1927. The man in the middle is Walter Fovargue, pro golfer and course architect who designed several courses in Washington including Willapa and GH Country Club. Fovargue learned golf as a caddy and became a professional at 17. He was on the founding executive committee of the PGA. Unfortunately the other gentlemen are not identified.If you have any information on this photo or others from this feature, visit www.jonesphotocollection.com and submit it via the website’s feedback form.
