Vintage Seattle was off last week as I was entertaining visiting family — including a 20 dollar trip to the Space Needle observation deck.
While the price isn’t terribly reasonable, ah that view! Regardless, we are back now so let’s have a look at Sixth and Virginia around 1955 below. Click for higher res.
City of Seattle, looking south towards the city center from approximately the intersection of Sixth and Virginia.
Cars drive down both streets.
Signs mark the Benjamin Franklin Hotel, the Orpheum Theatre, Pacific Lighting and other businesses.
