Looking up old downtown skyscrapers
Posted by Gabriel Campanario
I got plenty of sketching ideas from walking around Pioneer Square with University of Washington professor Jeffrey Karl Ochsner last week. (See Friday post.)
The intersection of Second Avenue and Cherry Street alone is surrounded with architectural history, no matter where you look. On the northeast corner is the 1924 Dexter Horton building, the one you can see on my sketch. Also here are the Alaska building (1904), the Hoge building (1911) and the Bailey building (1892) -- which I hope to sketch some other day.
Ochsner said this was the center of the city in the 1910s, when about 42,000 people lived in Seattle.
