From the Great Fire to the Worlds Fair, the Space Needle to Pike Place Market,Historic Photos of Seattle followslife, government, education, and events throughout the citys history.This volume captures unique and rare scenes through the lens of hundreds of historic photographs. Published in striking black and white, these images communicate historic events and everyday life of two centuries of people building a unique and prosperous city.
