Stillwell Brothers Construction photos

Don Bannister recently joined our group and offered some historic photos taken of the Montlake Cut during the construction of the Lake Washington Ship Canal. These photos are provided by the Bannister family. J.E. Bannister, nephew to Sam and Jim Stillwell, was actively involved in the Montlake project and assembled this collection. We hope to add a few more photos to this page and will add whatever information we currently have shortly.
