As Seattle and surrounding areas continue to be developed and new buildings pop up along various busy streets, it is fun to look back on what the City of Seattle looked like back in the day. This clapboard row house with two corner towers, six bays and 12 tenements (on the top two of its three floors) was built at the southwest corner of Sixth Avenue and Pine Street sometime soon after the city’s Great Fire of 1889.
