Search Technology Redux

Both listorama and I were amazed to come across a card catalog in the Seattle Central Library. This catalog contains the Washington Pioneers Index, people who settled in Washington State prior to 1910. Having searched through some card catalogs, it was good to see a remnant of previous search strategies still being employed. I hope it is preserved for posterity.
