Vintage Seattle contributor Allen is at it again with this 1909 Seattle panorama that just keeps going… and going. At 11436 x 2480 pixels this puppy has to be one of the largest ever to hit the blog.
The photo was originally taken by A.J. Park from the George W.
Elliott residence and you can make out a number of early Seattle landmarks. Thanks Allen! Click for the super duper high res.
