Yesterday, we asked you to guess where this busy Seattle intersection in 1968 is located. Sarah Weeks was the first one to say correctly that we're looking at First Avenue between Stewart & Virginia.
Images: Seattle Municipal Archives, Google Maps Walker-d shared some insights on the block and it's history:
I remember the Gatewood Hotel property, the site of the long departed Rickshaw Room, still dressed up for the Seattle World's Fair, a bit faded and worn out but the place was safe....not a condition which would endure for many more years, later Plymouth Housing signed a contract to turn the building into low income housing but now, goodbye Plymouth, hello to either studios or one bedroom apartments, all market rate for the location and probably a bargain at that. · All Cornerspotter coverage [CS]
