Picture Bainbridge: A Pictorial History of Bainbridge Island
208 pages. More than 200 photographs, drawings & illustrations.
Foreward by Ralph Munro, former Washington Secretary of State.
Picture a time when a handful of young Americans sailed south through Admirality inlet with dreams of making a new home. Trees grew to the waterline on every shore.
Picture a time whan a man named George Meigs bet his stake on a lumber operation at the tip of an island called Bainbridge. The year was 1853.
The town he built in a little cove connected to Port Madison Bay became known across the country. Meigs's settlement dwarfed the little village across Puget Sound name Seattle.
