Taken in 1915, you're looking at a photo of an old city hall here in Seattle. No, it's not Seattle City Hall, it was the main house for what's now one of Seattle's neighborhoods. This building stood from 1899 through 1965 when it was demolished and replaced by a park. These days, weary farmer's market shoppers might have a rest here before moving on. Can you name the neighborhood, building and intersection?
