Kennell-Ellis Photography 1950′s

Have I mentioned how much I love reader photo submissions? Well, I do.
When digging around in those old shoeboxes for photos of the old Seattle, don’t forget to send them in to share with everyone who views Vintage Seattle.
This is what Kristin Kennell did by sending in this late 1950′s photograph of the family business, Kennell-Ellis Photography Studio.
Take it away, Kristin:
This is a photo of our family’s business that was at 616 Olive Way for many years just around the corner from the old Fredrick and Nelson’s. They had several studios in downtown Seattle and many regionally around the PNW, naturally in the age when people dressed up to have their pictures taken and when fewer people had photo capabilities at home.
I thought you’d enjoy this photo. I am still digging for older ones of Seattle in the early days. Stay tuned.
Thanks for your website,
