Title: Book Watching

Author: John Wolcott

Publisher: Snohomish County Business Journal

Date: 5/1/2010

Arcadia Publishing, known for its local historical books and community profiles, has published a new addition to its 'Images of Rails' series through local authors Cheri Ryan and Kevin Sadler -- the Seattle-Everett Interurban Railway.

Operating for 29 years, the Interurban trolleys traveled over 29 miles of rail carrying passengers and freight to nearly 30 stops along its line.

On the morning of Apr. 30, 1910, the Seattle-Everett Interurban Trolley made its inaugural run, starting in Everett. On Feb. 20, 1939, the trolley left Everett for its last run.

Now Alderwood Manor native Cheri Ryan, President of the Alderwood Manor Heritage Association, and Kevin Sadler, another Alderwood Manor native who is past president of the association, have teamed up to tell the Interurban line's story in contemporary photos, more than half of them from the estate of Walter Shannon, the last surviving motorman on the railway. One of the six original Niles trolley cars has been restored and is on permanent display at Lynnwood's Heritage Park.

The authors will be signing books at the Alderwood Manor Heritage Association Sunday, May 2. The fascinating historical story is available at area bookstores, independent retailers, online retailers or through Arcadia Publishing at www.arcadiapublishing.com for $21.99.

About the Author

Sister and brother authors Cheri Ryan and Kevin K. Stadler grew up in the community of Alderwood Manor, once an important stop on the interurban route. Both are members of the Alderwood Manor Heritage Association and have done extensive research of the area. Stadler coauthored the Images of America: Alderwood Manor book with Marie Little. Ryan has participated in three of the Museum of History and Industry's Nearby History writing seminars. They have gathered images from a variety of sources; over half come from the estate of Walter V. Shannon, who was the last surviving motorman from the Seattle-Everett Interurban Railway.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Every year for Christmas I buy my husband a book that contains historical pictures and stories of Seattle. He loves being connected to our past and knowing the person behind whom landmarks in Seattle are named for. This is the book I purchased for Christmas 2010 and it was a hit. He's read the book, referred to it, and shared it with others several times. It contains fabulous historical photos of the railway, most of which is now a running/bicycle trail, and lots of stories of the hardships faced by the people who built and ran the railway. You don't have to be from Washington to love the book, just someone who loves reading about everyday history.
