I'm originally from Kitsap County, so I rounded up some images in and around Bremerton and Silverdale, Washington. First, Washington Avenue around 1909.
2nd Avenue in 1940. The shipyard building is still there today, but all the businesses here are long-gone. The Rialto Theater was damaged in the quake of 1949 and subsequently demolished. Bremerton had a busy, vibrant downtown back then.
A Boy Scout parade in downtown Bremerton, 1946. Let's catch that new movie "Spellbound" with Gregory Peck!
This is mostly for my Kitsap peeps. It's not filled with historic significance, but back in the day Silverdale only had one four-way stop with a red flashing light at the intersection of Bucklin Hill Road and Silverdale Way. The White Light Tavern was one of the town's finer cultural attractions.
