The City of Lake Forest Park has been working with King County Metro on a project to install historic photo murals in bus shelters within Lake Forest Park.  Over the last few days, King County Metro crews installed the murals in the six shelters.

The photos are from the early 1900s through the 1960s and show early life and landmark locations in the city. The photo murals are at the following locations:

  • SR 104/Ballinger Way NE and 175th Street (by top entry to Town Center)
  • SR 522/Bothell Way NE and 170th Street (Southbound and Northbound)
  • SR 522/Bothell Way NE and 165th Street (Southbound, by Sheridan Heights)
  • SR 522/Bothell Way NE and 153rd Street (Southbound)
  • SR 522/Bothell Way NE and 145th Street (Northbound)

A map with a list of the historic photos is available at the front desk of City Hall, or it can be viewed online on the city's main history webpage:

Special thanks to the Shoreline Historical Museum, the Seattle Municipal Archives, and the
Museum of History and Industry for providing most of the images. Thank you also to King County Metro and Photo Center Northwest for making this project possible.
