Wow, that looks like some rough sleddin'.
Nothing remains on the near block. 4th Ave and University Ave.
Looks like a Packard '30' town car (or similar limousine) backed in by the hotel. I hope he isn't TOO close to the tracks? He may not have been able to see the tracks when he parked there.
That was the snow storm in Seattle in 1916.
: ^ )
Seattle and surrounding areas have implemented a successful campaign to remove all traces of their history.
Great early pic jay. Thanks Tim
The large curved building on the second block is still there and it doesn't look like they did much to it. In the first photo look down by the second trolley car and you'll see the rounded front building with the lower half in white stone for the first two stories then it changes to brown stone. You can still see this building in the second photo just past the tree.
Love the early photo and added it to my collection on the computer. I change my screen saver often to reflect the seasons so I guess this will be my winter screen saver for a while.
