|Title||Waterfront and tideflats from Beacon Hill, Seattle, ca. 1898 |
|Photographer||Wilse, Anders Beer, 1865-1949 |
|Date||ca. 1898 |
|Caption||Tidal mudflats once extended all the way to the foot of Seattle's Beacon Hill. Roads and railroad tracks were built over the flats on wooden trestles. Developers bought these tidelands and filled it in for sawmills, shipyards, flour mills, and other waterfront industries.|
This photo by Anders Wilse, probably taken in 1898, shows what much of Seattle's waterfront looked like before the tidal flats were filled in.
