Category Archives: Georgetown, Seattle
From the Lucille St. bridge, looking NW. Some of rail lines leading into Seattle. Some of the spurs off of these main lines are not in use today as industries have relocated outside the city limits or just closed down.
Location: Rail road tracks that run parallel to Airport Way So. in Georgetown , Seattle. There’s a blast of steam in the middle of the image coming from a small industrial building. Downtown Seattle in the distance.
More of the graffiti to follow in future posts.
Over the past 10 years I have been photographing two Seattle neighborhoods, South Park and Georgetown. Both neighborhoods have been going through a lot of changes, but more so in the case of Georgetown. This wall is now gone.
The above brick wall was part of the massive. brick structure of the old Seattle Brewery. Today, this wall is gone. At the time I shot these images the walls were propped up or stabilized, on the back side, with large, steel rods or beams ( it wouldn’t take much of an earthquake to being them down). Arched windows, signage and other brick details are really cool and add so much character. Details, that today, would never even be a consideration in constructing a building, brick or otherwise.
My next posting will be of another old structure, Seattle Flour Company in West Seattle.
