LEARN ABOUT QUEEN ANNE BRIDGES
AT OUR ANNUAL MEETING
Maybe the person in the light color shirt at the top of the arch of this Queen Anne bridge is wielding a sledgehammer to affix a final rivet. Whatever he and his partner are doing, the absence of safety harnesses makes this work look very dangerous.
The photo comes from the Seattle Municipal Archives (Photo #10594), so we know when the picture was taken (June 26,1936) and where. You can learn about this bridge, the WPA and just maybe what those fellows are doing at our Annual Meeting on Thursday, June 3, at 7:00 pm. Following a brief business meeting, board member Maureen R. Elenga will talk about the bridges of Queen Anne. Elenga is the author of Bridges of Seattle which was published in January 2020.
WHY WE HAVE AN ANNUAL MEETING
The most important purpose of the Annual Meeting is to elect the society’s trustees. Our nominating team is at work identifying people who are willing, able and enthusiastic about Queen Anne history and the preservation of its historic built environment. If you like to be a candidate for board service, please send an email of interest as soon as possible to email@example.com. We’ll get right back to you.
