Welcome the University of Washington Libraries Digital Collection to The Commons!

They join The Commons with a special treat in honor of the Olympics: Winter Sports! They’ve got all the great sports from curling to hockey to dog sled teams (huskies, anyone?) to toboggans galore. These historic photos from the Pacific Northwest showcase the athletic prowess of former champions; some are quite whimsical, too.
