Title:King County snapshots : a photographic heritage of Seattle and surrounding communities

"King County Snapshots presents King County, Washington, through 12,000 historical images carefully chosen from twelve organizations' collections. These cataloged 19th and 20th century images portray people, places, and events in the county's urban, suburban, and rural communities."

"King County Snapshots grew out of Crossing Organizational Boundaries, a two-year project funded by a 2001 National Leadership Grant for Library and Museum Collaboration from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) ... This partnership between a major regional history museum, a major state university library, and ten smaller historical organizations belonging to the Association of King County Historical Organizations has resulted in the scanning and cataloging of the 12,000 images featured on this Web presentation"--Project background page.
