Du Pont

Mercer and Fairview, South Lake Union

E. I. DU PONT DE NEMOURS & Co. Paints Varnishes- I suspect this was a wholesaler outlet at some point- incidentally, the du Pont history in Washington is fascinating-

Roycroft Theater

19th and Aloha, Capitol Hill

I had just finished the book "The Hill with a Future: Seattle's Capitol Hill" by Jacqueline B. Williams when I just happened to ride down 19th and saw this. In the book, she talks specifically about the Roycroft's history for several dedicated paragraphs. I almost lost my passenger when I stopped to snap this pic, I was so excited.

The building now houses the Russian Community Center. Lucky Russians!
