Historical NoteReturn to Top

Founded in 1889, the Puget Sound Bridge and Dredging Company was destined to become one of Seattle's most important companies. Whether under the title Puget Sound Bridge and Dredging Company or Lockheed Shipbuilding and Construction Company, their hand can be seen in most major construction sites in the Pacific Northwest including Alaska, British Columbia, Washington, Idaho, Oregon and California. In addition, they are responsible for many ships, including some of the Washington State ferries and many naval vessels during and after World War II.

Some of the highlights in the history of this company include:

1909-1910
Hydraulic Dredges construct Harbor Island, the largest man-made island for thirty-five years--second now only to Treasure Island in San Francisco. Harbor Island was the site of the company since the thirties.
1924
The Dexter Horton Building was constructed in Seattle. At fourteen stories, it was the largest reinforced concrete building in the United States west of Chicago.
1927
A steel cantilever bridge was constructed over the Snake River at Twin Falls, Idaho.
1939
Construction began on the Lake Washington Floating Bridge.
WWII
WWII provided a boom in contracts for the company with the Navy. In conjunction with their Canadian affiliate, the British Columbia Bridge and Dredging Company, they constructed Naval bases in Alaska at Sitka, Dutch Harbor and Kodiak. In addition the BCB & D built a Point of Embarkation at Prince Rupert for the Army.
Eighty-two ships were constructed for the Navy as well, with a record fifteen (five of three different types) ships being delivered in one day.
1959
Company purchased by Lockheed.

More recent projects include the Grand Coulee Dam, much of the Interstate 5 bridges and roadways through Seattle, and the San Fernando Tunnel in California. They have continued to build ships ranging from dredges, tugs and ferries to mine sweepers, ice breakers and guided missile frigates, mostly for the Navy, Coast Guard and the states of Washington and Alaska.

Series 1:  Photographs Return to Top

Photographs created or received by the Puget Sound Bridge and Dredging Company and its successor, the Lockheed Shipbuilding and Construction Company. The majority of the photographs document various shipbuilding or construction projects. Another large set of photographs shows company employees during the World War II period. The subseries themselves are described more fully below. The photographs have been arranged in nine distinct subseries by subject. The photographs were received from Lockheed in 1988. It is not clear whether or not the subject categories that appear on the original inventory list created in 1988 by Sheila McKee reflect the original order in which the photograph files were organized or maintained by Lockheed.

Ninety-two folders (Box 2, Folders 1-92) comprised of black and white photographs.

It is not clear how the alphanumerical filing system indicated on the smaller format prints functioned; the 8 x 10 most likely duplicate the smaller. Oversize materials have been placed in the Oversize series.
