Highlights from the Collection

SMA's collections include a wide range of object types - maps, photographs, textual records, audio recordings, drawings, moving images - from more than 150 years of Seattle history. Each month one of our archivists features a favorite object from the collections in a short video. See this month's video below, and check out the whole series on YouTube.
