Explore apartments built in Seattle between 1900 and 1939. What prompted their construction? Who were their developers, builders, and architects? How did they function? How have their appearances changed?
Author Diana James (Shared Walls: Seattle Apartment Buildings 1900-1939) will lead a walking tour of one the city’s most abundant apartment building neighborhoods.
Along the route she’ll show off buildings that reflect various income levels, as well as both exterior and interior features that attracted residents. With so much new, higher density construction in our neighborhoods, this look at our solid traditional multi-housing stock will gain your respect for this dwindling inheritance, and hope for their survival.
Note: Tour will begin at the Thomas Burke Memorial west of the water tower in Volunteer Park.
