Mr. Junk, based in Olympia, Washington, photographed the Puget Sound area for over 35 years - from the late 1920’s into the 1960's.  Much of his work is in the photojournalism or documentary style.  Mr. Junk’s approximately 10,000 commercial negatives contain local and state subject matter including many aerials of Thurston County.  There are also many images of statewide interest because of the location of his business in the Capitol City of Olympia brought many contracts with state government entities including the construction of Interstate 5 for the Dept. of Transportation and the Dept. of Commerce commissions for Washington State tourism promotion.
