Cousin Ednah Forkner Lewis Schick – Seattle, 1918

010fThis photo was taken in 1918 in Seattle, Washington.  My great aunt was visiting her daughter and family, and I suspect she was staying at the boarding house which is shown on the left.  There are other photos which clearly show the sign that is only partly shown here, and it says “McDorris Rooming House.”  Ednah was on her second husband by this time, and unfortunately (or fortunately!), the marriage did not last very long.

Look at the stone building in the background and the statue that is atop it.  Also note the wooden sidewalk.  When I visited Seattle the first time, we went on a tour and were told about the wooden sidewalks which were put down in the streets to prevent people from having to walk in all the mud.  You can see the mud in the street here.
