Hudson's Bay: A recently opened exhibit at the Fort Vancouver Visitor Center features historical photographs of Washington residents at work in the 1930s and 1940s, including this 1940 shot showing two men working on street improvements. "Putting People to Work: The WPA in Washington, 1935 to 1943" is a traveling exhibit created by the Washington State Historical Society. The display can be viewed until late March along with its companion exhibit, "Strong Forests, Stronger Communities: The Civilian Conservation Corps in the Northwest."
