|Title||Maison Blanc restaurant, Seattle, 1953 |
|Caption||In the mid-1920s, Charles Joseph Ernest Blanc turned the Stacy mansion, built in 1885 by real estate pioneer Martin Van Buren and Elizabeth Stacy, into La Maison Blanc Restaurant. Before its turn as a restaurant, the building also housed the Seattle Chamber of Commerce. It was famous for serving delicacies such as turtle steak, reindeer meat, frogs' legs, escargot and eel. The interior was damaged by a fire in 1960, and the building was demolished two months later. |
