In 1915, George W. Tibbetts drafted the bill for a Snoqualmie Pass highway and pushed it through state legislature. The resulting gravel highway was the first to cross the Cascades. This postcard commemorates its opening in 1915. With the opening of the pass, Issaquah became a landmark on the path through the Cascades.
