In 1916, this photograph of the Nikko family was taken. Parents Maria Eliina Oli Nikko and Matt Nikko (back row, left to right) immigrated separately to the United States, and were married in Issaquah in 1910. Their children were Helen, Arvo, and twins Toivo and Laurie. Their youngest child, Wilma, was born in 1917. The Nikkos were one of a number of Finnish immigrants who found their way to the Issaquah area to settle.
