Civic Fascination

posted by on April 17 at 11:15 AM


Over on Flickr, there’s a fascinating photostream called Seattle Municipal Archives, featuring tons of stuff from ye olde Seattle, from the logo above to a pro-Beatle screed written to the mayor in 1964 to photo montage of 1973’s Miss Seafair candidates and beyond.

(Seattlest loves this stuff too! Thanks to Slog tipper Jake.)

"The Swinging Gateway" is so much better than "The Emerald City" or that meaningless abomination "Metronatural". Let's start using it again!

OOooooohh! It's all Peter Maxeeee! It's like a whiff of grandma's oatmeal cookies baking - when grandma died in 1975.
