Postcards from the past: Van Lierop Bulb Farm, 1993


Alvaro Beltran picks tulips at Van Lierop Bulb Farm in the Puyallup Valley in 1993. It was a good year for tulips at the farm, but an even better one for daffodils. Depending on the weather, all the flowers would typically be picked within about 10 days.

Postcards from the past is an occasional feature, highlighting images from The Seattle Times historical archive.
