Wednesday, over 700K people crammed into Downtown Seattle to watch the Seahawks victory parade. It's a long way from the city's beginnings and that made us want to take a look back. We decided to dig through the photo archives to find the very best antique images of Downtown. Most of these are more than 110 years old, back when Seattle was just starting to come into its own. And long before there was ever such thing as the Seattle Seahawks, or the NFL. Heck, American football was still a wee baby.
