The program presents photographs taken on the Tulalip Reservation by Norman S. Edson (1876-1968), Ferdinand Brady (1880-1967) and J. A. Juleen (1874-1935).
Edson was the son of a well-known Canadian landscape painter. An accomplished violinist and avid ornithologist, he learned photography from Bert Brush of Everett and often used his photos as the basis for his drawings and paintings.
Ferd Brady was based initially in Marysville and later moved to Anacortes after producing an impressive array of postcard views of Tulalip residents and buildings.
Everett photographer J. A. Juleen’s remarkable 1914 photos of tribal leader William Shelton and the Treaty Day observance at Tulalip survive as glass negatives in the collection of the Everett Public Library.  Many of our organizations have other photographs taken by Juleen throughout the County.
Take advantage of this great opportunity to learn more about Snohomish County history through the eyes of the local photographers of the day.
