I was recently invited to tour Pioneer Sq

uare’s historic Furuya Building and, of course, jumped at the chance.

It’s not often that I’m literally given the keys to the building and allowed

to photograph for as long as I want. As such, there are too many photos to contain in just one post.

Today’s Part 1 will focus on the exterior while tomorrow the interior shots (where most of the fun is) will come. The Furuya was built in 1900 for one of Seattle’s most important Japanese businessmen, Masahiro Furuya.

The Chicago School style building was originally two stories, with the other three coming in 1904. However, as you can see from the photos below, the top two floors were lost to fire in the 1940′s. The floor saga continues as the building, now under restoration, is getting floor four and five back. Check out the photos and come back tomorrow for Part 2. Big thanks to Rob Brewster of ConoverBond Development for the tour.

    I recently purchased a silver plated spoon with M.Furuya Co. Ltd. engraved on the handle. Would this have been associated with a restaurant for the firm or could it have been used for business dinners etc?

    I can’t answer your question but I have a fancy coffee set (bone china with gold leaves – cups, saucers, creamer and pot) marked M Furuya Yokohama, Japan. The letter M appears in the center in a diamond. I received this from my mother-in-law years ago with no explanation of its origin.
