Welcome to the Uplake Neighborhood Photo Gallery! There are several different albums here, each with different photos. This album shows the five most recently-added pictures; select from the other albums to see more!
I honestly don’t know whether the most surprising part of this 1977 photograph is that it was used on a postcard – which it was – or that the old Barber Shop is now a hair salon. Yes, the branding has changed a little, but it’s still hair. But if you’re wondering – no, Dorothy isn’t running it.

From approximately 1915, a postcard, a hand-coloured black-and-white photograph showing Bothell Way heading west into Kenmore – and a misspelled Sammamish River. It’s very unusual to see a photo of any kind looking west from that far east! The rail line visible in the postcard is now Burke-Gilman Trail.
Below that, enjoy the same view – as best I could manage it – using Apple Maps.
A little while ago, I bought a Japanese-made Korean doll which had been packaged away in 1971 – or so it appears, given that the copy of The Seattle Times used to pad it were from 1971 – and hey, look – an Uplake house for sale!
Also another house elsewhere in Kenmore – this one doesn’t have an address.
Both from the Sunday, July 18th, 1971 issue of The Seattle Times.
