Description

Relief workers built a trail in Lincoln Park – which is almost certainly the stone-lined trail and steps down to the beach that still exist.  They may have built the picnic shelter, as well.

A photo from the University of Washington digital collections shows workmen constructing a trail along a steep hillside. The caption on the photo says “State of Wash., E.R.A. K.C.D., Proj. 509, Dec. 26, 1933, Neg. No. 19; Lincoln Park.”  ERA refers to Emergency Relief Administration – the state-level agency supported  by funds from the Federal Emergency Relief Administration (FERA).
