Photos: Decades of difference - NE 155th

Friday, January 11, 2019

This is NE 155th in Lake Forest Park, looking down toward Bothell Way - which was called Lake City Way then. It's from the collections of the Seattle Municipal Archives.

Fascinating that the Sheridan Market is still there and with the same name. The house on the left is the same and so is the tree - it's just 60 years bigger. It was pretty spindly in 1961.

There are a lot more houses on the other side of the lake.

The paved road and guardrail are important improvements. In the first photo it looks like a heavy rain will wash out the whole hillside.

I haven't found a lot of local photos in the SMA, so finding this was a real treat.

Wonderful pictures. The view of the east side of Lake Washington is the northern part of the incredible sights I enjoyed from the home where I grew up on 42nd NE in Seattle. We moved there in 1960. That is a very familiar scene!
Sadly, it appears the Sheridan Market is now permanently closed (according to Google).
