Today’s vintage ad comes from the 1918 Argus
. The Seattle Times
used the Times Building from 1915 until 1931 (when they moved into their current home in South Lake Union featured here
). Architecture firm Bebb and Gould designed the terra-cotta beauty as Times
circulation rocketed to around 70,000. The newspaper was bought in 1896 by Col.
A.J. Blethen (see his house here
) and his descendants still own a majority of the paper today.
