Mount Rainier & Lake Washington – 1903

Mount Rainier, Lake Washington,
Mount Rainier, Lake Washington,

This 1903 Mount Rainier postcard is interesting with a native american canoeing across what is a sparsely populated Lake Washington. I say this because I found another version of this postcard on the Tacoma Public Library website.

It looks almost identical except for the colorization and minus the native american.

Just had to also add a shot of what Lake Washington looks like today with a few mansions. Still a beautiful spot.
