TRAFFIC/TRANSIT TODAY: Thursday updates; ferry trouble; our weekly look back

(Four WS-relevant views; more cams on the WSB Traffic page)
Nothing of note on the roads so far but we do have a major problem on the Fauntleroy-Vashon-Southworth ferry run. Most recent update from WSF:

The Issaquah is out of service for necessary repairs. The 7:05am sailing from Fauntleroy to Vashon and Southworth is cancelled. The following sailings may also be affected until repairs can be made: 7:30am Vashon to Southworth, 7:55am Southworth to Vashon and Fauntleroy.

Please check the online schedule to view sailing times. Updates will occur as information becomes available.

8:01 AM: Aside from the ferry trouble, no incidents. So it’s on with our Throwback Thursday Traffic photo of the week, from the Seattle Municipal Archives. You’ll probably recognize this spot in what’s now The Triangle:

The date: November 1957. The intersection: Fauntleroy/37th. Click the image to go to the Muni Archives page with a larger version of the photo, so you can take a closer look.

8:42 AM: Ferry update – M/V Issaquah is still out and runs are still being canceled – keep watch on the WSF website for the latest.

9:26 AM: WSF says the Issaquah is fixed and is returning to service with “a late 9:20 am departure from Southworth to Vashon and Fauntleroy.”

    The Mount before the big remodeling. And I spy where Mom would park the car when going to the Y to swim.

    The date of November makes sense. Sputnik was launched in early Oct. Check out the sign on the dry cleaners. :-)

    Excellent archive documenting the lack of triangle parking even back then.

    Every street parking place is taken.

    The Y with pool was in the old location on Fauntleroy alley without the large parking lot of today’s facility.

    We need to make more “Stop For Foot Traffic” signs and plaster the city with them. Love the throwback Thursday theme.

    Was the clock on the cleaners actually working then?

    Gina, your mom had a driver’s license? I don’t think my mom got hers until I was in college.

Sorry, comment time is over.
