Ah, the hustle and bustle of Seattle back in 1911. It must be election time since the banner over the street reads: "E J Brown Socialist Candidate for Mayor, Headquarters Room 213 Liberty Bldg." A quick check of the mayoral history shows that Edwin would in fact become mayor but not until 1922. But where'd he hang his banner back in 1911? Any idea?
