Scope this card from 1929 showing Union (built 1911) and King Street Stations (built 1906). In the foreground, Union Station is no longer used for railroad but houses Sound Transit. Having sat vacant since the early 1970′s, the station was renovated in 1999 by Paul Allen’s Vulcan Company in exchange for land near it. The station went on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.
Lillian writes in 1929:
Dear Mama — Am sending you a calendar — thought maybe you didn’t have one this particular style.
Am also sending those snaps of me I promised you last summer — haven’t had any new ones taken to send now.
We are having a long cold spell.
Lots of snow!
Hope everyone’s well. Love to all — Lillian.
