Port Ludlow Postcards


I collect historic postcards, especially “real photo postcards” or RPPCs. Here’s several early photos of Port Ludlow, Wash., a lumber mill town founded in the 19th Century that’s now a master-planned resort community. Every building you see here is gone, but if you go to Port Ludlow today, you’ll find a totem pole telling its history. The totem pole is at “Burner Point,” where the large burner with the round top is visible in these photos. You can read more about Port Ludlow’s history in the book “Tide, Time, and Timber.”
