About the Blog
The Northwest Past is a blog aimed at exploring historical images and items from the history of the Pacific Northwest, Washington and the 20th century in particular. The idea for the blog spawned out of my obsession with local history, my desire to share such information with others, and the sad passing of vintageseattle.org, a really great blog that will be dearly missed and that I hope to see return!
Many history blogs focus solely on images, but I thought that it would be fun to include historical objects, like souvenirs and yearbooks. Unless otherwise stated, all images and items featured on the blog come from my personal collection.
If you would like to use one of my photos on your own website or blog, feel free to contact me here.
I’m Christin, a recent college grad who loves local history, old things, music, writing, sewing, and Jell-O molds. This is my first foray into blogging.
My profile picture stars the Skookum Indian, a Wenatchee landmark once attached to a fruit warehouse belonging to Skookum Fruit. He now resides atop an office supply store, and keeps an eye on a busy part of town. If you have no idea who the Skookum Indian is, you can watch him on youtube here.
I’m glad you’ve stopped by my blog! Thanks for coming, and happy reading! : )
