Pet day in Woodinville circa 1910
NW News Staff
One spring day early in the twentieth century "Children's Pet Day" was held, with the children together with their pets gathering at the Hollywood Farm, today the location of Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery. Only a few kittens made it into this historic photo--perhaps the dogs could not be persuaded to "hold that pose" long enough to get a crisp photo. The names of only a few of the children and adults in this photo are known at this time. If you can identify anyone in this picture, please contact the newspaper office or the Woodinville Historical Society.
