Stories of a Seattle corner

The fascinating story of this location is recounted in Rob Ketcherside’s Re:Take column, on Seattlest, and gives an even fuller account on the image’s Flickr page. The building evidently dates to 1927 and “has housed many sad stories, but has a sign of hope.” Here is how it looked in 1957. In 2007 the building caught fire, but “good samaratins saved two people,” from the blaze. “And now, a sign of hope in the fight against cancer graces the building.”

Check those links for the full details. What a cool column!
