Kirkland farms, 1918
The national economic depression of the 1890s ended Kirkland, Washington's plans to become an industrial city. Instead, agriculture gave the city its first stable economic base. Farms in Kirkland and nearby Houghton raised berries, fruit, flower bulbs and livestock. This 1918 photo shows a small farm near Kirkland. Two young cows graze by the roadside.
