    Creation Date: ca. 1909
    Catalog ID: C1975.51.40
    Photograph of a waterfall identified as Snoqualmie Falls, King County, WA. Most of the image is of the waterfall, which is much fuller than is typically the case now. We can see mist rising from the bottom of the falls, which is not visible. The diversion structure associated with the hydroelectric project, just above the fall, is visible. On the far side of the waterfall we can see the intake building for the hydro project, a one-story brick building, as well as the elevator, a small pavilion in front of the intake building. Above these are several residential home and cabins.
