through the Ballard Locks, circa 1916.
In case you had not checked in for a while, I thought I would put the "Friends of the Ballard Locks" back on your radar. One of their members, Kyle Stetler, let us know in his article for the FOBL blog that June 25th is the 102nd anniversary of the passage of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1910, which appropriated the funds to begin construction of the locks. A good investment, I'd say.
