A Special Message from Author Aileen Langhans

 The new book, including signed copies, “Random Facts from the Founding Days of Everett, Washington” has been restocked and is available at J. Mathesons Gift shop on Colby Avenue in downtown Everett.  
   
All revenue from the book sale will be donated to “Friends of the Everett Public Library” to fund a special Northwest History Room project: the framing and digitizing of their collection of historic panoramic photographs.  Once they are archivally framed, these important historical photographs will be displayed outside the Northwest History Room, making them available to the entire community.  
This is a wonderful opportunity to support the work of our library’s archivists and historians and to learn interesting facts about Everett’s very beginnings.
 
If you wish to purchase a book directly, please contact Aileen M. Langhans at randomfactsofeverett@outlook.com (email address) or 206-522-0203

These are two pieces of slag  found by a local homeowner on his property that borders the original location of the Puget Sound and Alaska Powder Company Mill which exploded on September 17, 1930.  For more information take a look at Margaret Riddle’s excellent essay here.
