Glimpses of Seattle by C.H. Ford

A decade ago I purchased a box of slides from an online auction. The photos, from the 50s-80s were taken by a semi-professional photographer named C.H Ford from Seattle, Washington. There are hundreds of fantastic photos from Seattle, Canada and places continental.

For this Found (Ford) Photo Friday, I though it would be fun to share some of his photos of Seattle.
