Artist Ellen Sollod took her pinhole camera and audio recorder out to create a portrait of the Lake Washington Shoreline, highlighting changes since the completion of the Lake Washington Ship Canal. See the results at http://lakewashingtonpalimpsest.blogspot.com/.
Eastside Heritage Center‘s curriculum focuses on specific people who lived in various places around Lake Washington, whose lives were affected by the lowering of the Lake in 1916. Each unit includes a brief biography, primary source documents, historic photographs, a map showing the shoreline before and after the lake was lowered, and suggested questions and activities, aimed at 7th grade students. Developed in partnership with the Bellevue School District. For more information or to obtain curriculum materials, contact Eastside Heritage Center at firstname.lastname@example.org.
