Description
The Walter P. Miller photographs, circa 1920-1932, (SAFR 23359, P77-028a) are comprised mainly of photographs of tall ships underway off the Pacific Coast of Washington state. The collection has been processed to the Item level and is open for use.
Background
Walter P. Miller (1877-1938) was a photographer of the Pacific Northwest, primarily of the Seattle, Washington, area. His body of work is varied, a significant portion documenting the town and people of Seattle, and is valuable for documenting life in the Pacific Northwest at the turn of the twentieth century. Although it seems as though the majority of his work did not depict maritime culture, he took a particular interest in documenting or collecting maritime photography and was a sailor himself.
