This series contains over 600 black and white and color images used for various Department of Public Works publications (chiefly annual reports) and promotional projects. Mediums include 35mm and 4x5 negatives; 8x10, 5x7 and 3x5 photographs and contact sheets. The photograph collection was maintained by longtime department employee, Jan Klippert. The original organization of Klippert's subject files has been preserved for the most part. The collection includes numerous images of construction projects, equipment, and portraits of Department of Public Works employees (many identified by name). Also included is a small set of early photographs of the concrete bridge at Fall City; an album showing 1979 winter storm damage in King County; images taken from three scrapbooks documenting recreational activities at Si View Park from the 1950s through the 1970s.
