The next time someone you know asks what’s so special about Seattle (and doesn’t it rain there, like, every day?)… you may want to whip out this ad from the 1914 Cosmogram
. Tell ‘em Seattle has the most equitable climate.
Tell ‘em about the twenty miles of Boulevards.
Tell ‘em its death rate was 8.37 per thousand. Tell ‘em Seattle has the lowest rate of illiteracy of any city.
Tell ‘em it’s the City of Destiny ™. Just don’t tell ‘em about the Mariners.
|Seattle — The City Of Destiny. The New York of the Pacific and the Home Port of Alaska — WHY ? The Cosmogram, 1914.
