Victory Boulevard (Old Brick Road), towards Uplake, 1924
|December 27, 2011||Posted by uplake under Photographs, Photohistory|
By this time, the Brick Road (now Bothell Way/SR-522) had been renamed Victory Boulevard after the Great War (now World War I). The curve in the road visible in the distance is in what is now Kenmore western city limits; Kenmore’s downtown, already present, is off camera to the right; if you look carefully, you can spot the gap in the trees marking Cat’s Whiskers Road (61st Avenue NE). Uplake would be laid out 25 years later, on the hill visible in photograph centre.
