Photo by Hal Porter

Originally published by Hal Porter Photos, 5407 So. Alaska St. Seattle 18, Washington. The exact date of the photo is unknown; it’s approximate date is sometime in the 1960’s. It is known that Hal Porter was planning to retire in 1969. I was able to find a classified ad that posted:

AERIAL, INDUSTRIAL & ARCHITECTURAL PHOTO STUDIO Full photo lab In beautiful furnished home on Lake Washington. Includes good color post card business. Established, profitable, growing. Owner retiring. Write Hal Porter Photos, 5407 S. Alaska St., Seattle, Washington

The date of this newspaper ad was April 18, 1969 (Daily Telegram from Eau Claire, Wisconsin)*

On the back of the postcard, the caption says:
