windmills Newly available picture of Willowmoor Farm windmill, Redmond, USA

In my round-up of Mills of Washington State, USA I included the windmill shaped building at Marymoor Park, Redmond. In its current state, this building looks most unlike it was ever worked by wind. However, in the recently available King County Snapshots photo archive, there is a photo of the mill from the Clise Collection dating from when the area was still known as Willowmoor Farm. This photo shows the building much closer to the river, and with a far more lifelike pair of sails - which does add a bit more credence to the supposition that this was once used to pump water from the river.
