Snapshots in Time
Granddaughter of photographer and founder of Price Photo Service, Albert E. Price, Kathleen Thompson presents a glimpse into Seattle’s past through a heritage of pictures. Albert started the business in 1925, and after his death in 1945, his wife and Kathleen’s parents took over. Even Kathleen at the tender age of nine helped out in the developing room. Although her father, Donald, sold the company, the family retained thousands of photographs of the Puget Sound area. A choice selection presented here shows Seattle and environs in its early years.
