Who are these dashing men lounging casually on a park lawn? They're the 1900 Seattle City Council, if you can believe that. Apparently during an inspection tour of Seattle's parks, they stopped to chill out in this shady Queen Anne spot for a few minutes. Named for an early Seattle settler, this park still offers great views of the city, especially of the grain elevators on Pier 86. Any idea what Seattle park this is?
