Redmond Patch Centennial Photo Contest: We Have a Winner!

Parks and trails commissioner Tom Sanko was the lucky winner in our Redmond Lights drawing.

Congratulations to Tom Sanko, the lucky winner of the recent Redmond Patch Centennial Photo Contest!

Sanko, who has lived in Redmond for 18 years, serves on the city's parks and trails commission. His prize is a $50 gift card to Pomegranate Bistro, which he identified as one of his favorite spots in Redmond.

We collected dozens of entries for the contest both at our Redmond Lights booth and online. Our winner was randomly selected out of participants who correctly identified the location of three historical photographs from downtown Redmond.

Here are the correct answers.

Photo 1: Bill Brown Saloon, which now houses The Matador restaurant (either name was accepted). 

Photo 2: Leary Way (looking northeast)

Photo 3: Stone House/OA Wiley Home (either name accepted).

Congratulations to our winner, and thanks to everyone who played along!

Bill Brown Saloon, middle door, if memory serves became a shoemaker. Redmond Floors was in the Half Price books. The Redmond Hardware later moved to where the Ski Haus is. Leary Way looking north, not east.

Thanks for the comment, Bob. The historical society told me it was east, but I suppose it's probably more like NE, with more N than E.

Direction was not required in the response on that one, by the way. :)
