In 1920s Seattle, it may have been a different time and place, with historic revival styles dominating home construction. One of the most prolific of these was the Tudor Revival, featuring a grab bag of high roof peaks, half-timbering, leaded-glass windows, ornate brickwork, and archways. The effect is not unlike a building in a medieval village, and Seattle couldn’t get enough of it. Builders like Fred Anhalt jumped on the trend, constructing elaborate homes and buildings throughout the Emerald City.
But leading up to the Great Depression, Seattle construction exploded—and while construction had decreased 95 percent by 1932, we got a whole lot of elaborate Tudor houses added before the collapse (and, eventually, building trends that favored less busy construction).
