Madison Park Ferry @ 4 pm


A quick peek in the Henry archives has revealed this fun piece of history. A letter written by the Art department from Kirkland Union “A” High School in December of 1930, requesting a group tour at the Henry! As you can see below, the group requested visiting hours from 1:00-3:15 pm … in order to still have time to catch the 4pm ferry from Madison Park to Kirkland. Many thanks to the Henry’s Exhibition Manager, Paul, for the fantastic find!

It’s much easier to organize  a tour at the Henry in 2009…
