Biographical NoteReturn to Top

In 1910, at the age of sixteen, James P. Lee started his career as a messenger boy for the Seattle Engineering Department where he worked for two years. From 1913 until his retirement in 1957, he worked for and became manager of their blue-print and photographic division which documented the progress of major city construction jobs. In 1922, he advanced from photographer's assistant to the position of full time photographer and was the sole photographer for the city until 1932.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

This collection records the changing landscape of Seattle from circa 1907-1940. Includes photographs of Seattle neighborhoods including: Central Business District, Denny Regrade, First Hill, Capitol Hill, Fremont, Ballard, Georgetown, Ravenna, Magnolia, Leschi, Madrona, and Central District. Other images are of Alaska Yukon Pacific Exposition, regrades, houseboats, Seattle waterfront, Hooverville, King Street Station and 1930s labor rallies. A few of the images are copies of work by other Seattle photographers such as A. C. Warner and Webster and Stevens.

Other Descriptive InformationReturn to Top

Based on Lee's biographical details, it is extremely unlikely that he took the bulk of these photographs, especially those from 1907-1913, as he would have been thirteen years old in 1907. For many years, all of the photographs in this collection have been attributed to Lee, but it seems more reasonable to attribute the photographs taken 1922-1932 to him. Images in the collection made 1913-1922 may have been photographed by Lee, but are equally or more likely to have been taken by the photographers in charge before him.
