I just got off the water taxi and was heading over to Pioneer Square in Seattle Washington when I was struck by this old hotel with its cast iron balconies. It was easy to step back into time when the Gold Rush and the logging industry helped create this dynamic city and yet remain in 2015. The area’s early structures were mostly wooden, this is logging country after all, but Great Fire of 1889 consumed the majority of the buildings. Brick and stone buildings sprung up leaving this area in ninetieth century character and architecture. This week’s black and white photograph, Pioneer Square Saloon.
