Product Description:
From the dawn of human flight to today, Seattle has hosted flying history from dirigibles and fabric biplanes to jumbo jets, from epic pioneering flights to innovative companies making world travel routine. This book recaptures that historical awe and connects it with a sense of place. These subjects may span decades of existence or represent a single day’s events. Some are inspiring places of creativity and innovation, some are grim accident sites. All have some significance to the story of flight in the region. Do you know the exact spot of the first airplane flight in the area? How about where The Boeing Company began? Where did the top secret XB-29 prototype crash during its urgent WWII test program? Where did the first non-stop flight across the Pacific end? This book will answer those questions and many more as we dig into the aviation archeology of the “Jet City” and its surroundings.

Product Description:
Seattle's growth from a small lumber town to one of the world's most influential urban centers has been spectacular. Little more than a century ago, the city was made up of dirt roads and timber buildings. The arrival of the Great Northern Railroad in 1893 and the start of the Klondike gold rush in 1897 changed all that. Businesses in Seattle are still booming today, but they are now less dependent on location and more on inspiration. Seattle Then and Now presents archival photos along with modern views of the same sites as they appear today, highlighting some of the best-loved places in the city along with striking examples of modern architecture that help make Seattle such a vibrant and innovative city.

Product Description:
Unearths the buried bones of an invented city that was carved out of hills and bay.

Early Seattleites were neither sentimental nor nostalgic, destroying iconic schools, libraries, entire neighborhoods, and high hills.They ripped out the very muscles of industry and the veins of rails and ferries on which the city was created.

68 vignettes of cast-aside Seattle are given new light, including Japantown, the Kalakala, Joseph Mayer's clock factory, interurban railways, Yesler's mill, Capitol Hill's auto row, Denny Hill, Moran Brothers' shipyard, the Carnegie Central Library, Boeing and the SuperSonics. From the 1880s to the present day.

This richly illustrated book brings these lost buildings, structures and neighborhoods back to life, to reveal the Seattle that once was.
