Here’s a little snip from the 1928 Argus.

|BUILDING FOR THE FUTURE. The cutting of an extension of Second Avenue from Yesler Way to Jackson Street, thus giving a “straight shoot” through the city from the depots, which entailed razing buildings seven stories in height, will cost more than the entire assessed value of all the property within the city limits fifty years ago. The Argus, 1928.
