Most of 2006 I spent putting together Early Snohomish — a collection of historic images published by Arcadia Publishers. To promote its publication in 2007, and to prolong my love affair with the historic images of Snohomish, I began writing a monthly column for the Snohomish County Tribune called “Snohomish Then and Now”. Each article features a historical photograph compared with a repeat shot of the same place or scene of Snohomish, along with a short description to give the historic image context.
Snohomish Then and Now is modeled after the regional gold standard of repeat photography projects begun by Paul Dorpat for the “Seattle Times’ Sunday Magazine” in 1982. Readers are invited to add what they know about the places featured; plus, Snohomish lifelong residents are encouraged to look through their family albums for images and stories about Snohomish that they wish to share.
I look forward to hearing from You.
