|Title||Church of the Immaculate Conception damaged by storm, Seattle, 1934 |
|Caption||On October 21, 1934, a record-breaking wind storm blew through the Puget Sound region, causing 17 deaths and massive property damage. This photo shows damage to the Church of the Immaculate Conception, Seattle's oldest standing Catholic Church, located in the Capitol Hill neighborhood. The wind toppled the church's smokestack into the dome of the sanctuary. Fortunately, the last mass of the day had ended ten minutes prior, and no one was injured. |
