That photo oozes anticipation!

I'd love to see that same shot today. I'll bet all of those older buildings are gone or replaced.

Actually, I think they aren't.

I overlaid them and aligned the buildings on the left and the tracks as well as I could, using the best match of images. The shorter Space Needle is the newer photo. In none of the shots could I get the Space Needle to be as tall as the old photo. Maybe the B&W shot was with a telephoto? That focal length, parallax stuff always interests and frustrates me!

Thanks for posting that sequence, Kevin.

Cute. The more time I spend on this website, the more I know I _must_ visit the US properly some day :-(
