We are lucky enough to have a great photos shared by Jeannie Woehl.

Her family had lived in LaGrande, Wash., when she was young and contacted Tacoma Power for any images that they might have. They provided her quite a few. Here is the first batch.

If anyone has any memories of that area, please feel free to share them below.

  1. Thanks for the memories

    I lived in the big house shown in picture with Tacoma Light sign.
    Remember sledding down the hill, which at age 5 was much steeper than it looks to me now.

    My neighbors were the Loftist and Nordstroms.

    In snow picture of gas station – my dad worked right behind that on the tram. Later he became a hydro=electric operator.
