Content DescriptionReturn to Top

The Virginia Huntington photograph collection primarily contains images of aircraft and views of Seattle (including the Sand Point Naval Station and West Seattle), many of which predate her birth (primarily from the late 1920s and early 1930s) and what appear to be several family vacation pictures from the summer of 1948, showing Dry Falls, Dry Falls Lake, Mount Rainier, Yakima Park, and other locations in Washington State. The collection also includes some aerial views of Seattle, as well as one possible portrait of Boeing family members, Nathan Paschall Jr. and Cranston Pashchall (stepsons of William E. Boeing) in a biplane.
