Kirkland Now & Then -- Downtown in the 1940's

This color image looking north over Moss Bay comes from the collection of the Kirkland Heritage Society and is not dated, but is likely the winter of 1948-49. The image shows the old Kirkland ferry dock and bumper dolphins still in place and those were removed in 1951, so the photo obviously pre-dates that.

Color film was expensive in the late 1940's, so such images from that time are a rare treat.
