Acerca de


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.

From the Inside Flap:

For a city that was founded as late as 1851, Seattle has a wealth of history. In less than a century, Seattle went from pioneer settlement to regional metropolis. Having lost almost all of its downtown buildings in the devastating fire of 1889, it took every bit of the city's famous "Seattle Spirit" to rebuild and start again. While many more landmarks have been lost since 1889, this richly illustrated book brings back to life the city's forgotten buildings, structures and neighborhoods to reveal the Seattle that once was.

Lost Seattle features many previously unpublished images of architectural treasures that were lost to the wrecking ball long before the era of historic preservation. As well as the outright losses, like Yesler Mansion, Elks Hall and Kingdome, Lost Seattle also includes sites that have been damaged, significantly altered or repurposed over the years. Among these losses are whole areas that have been transformed (the City of Georgetown, Denny Hill and Japantown), forms of transportation that have become obsolete (interurban railways and cable cars) and buildings that have been totally reconstructed (Carnegie Central Library, Plymouth Church and the Coliseum).

Offering a rare glimpse into the past, Lost Seattle includes the extravagant buildings of the 1909 Alaska Yukon Pacific Exposition and the 1962 World's Fair, elegant hotels (Occidental, Denny and Seattle), grand department stores (MacDougall & Southwick and Frederick & Nelson), as well as the city's once thriving theaters and picture palaces (New Pantages, Orpheum and Fox). Landmarks that have been lost more recently, like Boeing Headquarters, the Fun Forest and Fort Lawton are also featured. To revisit these sites and many more, open these pages, step back in time and enjoy the glorious architectural past of Seattle.
