Upper Skagit Watershed
The Upper Skagit Watershed photography illustrates Seattle City Light activities and development of the hydroelectric projects over more than half a century. These images document the changing landscape, human activities, natural history, and wildlife of the Skagit River and its tributary watersheds. This visual record is invaluable for understanding the natural, social, and economic forces that have shaped the region. The following is a small sampling of the Upper Skagit images in the Seattle Municipal Archives photograph database.
