Aerial photograph of Tacoma shoreline, October 1948

This aerial photograph shows the Tacoma shoreline looking north from the mouth of the City Waterway (now Thea Foss Waterway) as it looked in October of 1948. This area was dramatically transformed with the building of I-705 and the Schuster Parkway.
