|Title||Workers pouring concrete for Seattle Post-Intelligencer building, Seattle, July 10, 1947 |
|Caption||The Seattle Post-Intelligencer started publishing in 1881. In the late 1940s, the newspaper held a nationwide competition for an architect for a new building on Wall Street. The design included a large, revolving globe with an eagle on top, which stood above the entryway. The streamlined style of the building, with its glass and flat surfaces, was very popular during the 1930s and 1940s. This 1947 photo shows workers pouring concrete for the new building. |
