Santa Claus is coming to Issaquah Commons
November 22, 2011
This holiday season, Arthur and Associates continues its decadeslong tradition of providing Santas and accompanying professional photographers at locations in the area, including a workshop in the Issaquah Commons, 975 N.W. Gilman Blvd., (between Panera Bread and Chico’s.) from Nov. 25 through Dec. 24.
According to Arthur and Associates, credited with being the first to boost small children onto Santa’s knee for the annual portrait, Seattle Post-Intelligencer photographer Art French opened Arthur and Associates in 1943 in a downtown Seattle department store. French continued to take Santa photos for the next 20 years, until the Viydo family, which has operated the firm since 1962, purchased the company.
