Photographs and text about Seattle mostly in the mid 20th century. The theme of the book is that the ‘old’ Seattle has mostly disappeared - the downtown department stores, loads of restaurants, odd and unique buildings, and so on. Though I understand the impulse to want to return to a simpler time, it’s not really something that resonates with me. But for the nostalgic or for people interested in recent cultural history, this book will be of some interest.
