c1920 downtown Seattle Washington real photo stereoview by Keystone - Second Avenue from Yester Way. Second Avenue is filled with the hustle and bustle of period street cars, Model T vehicles and people.
In 1920, Seattle Washington was already considered a major American city, having grown to 350,000 people from only 1,000 people in 1870. Located on Elliot Bay, a section of Puget Sound, it was one of only a handful of major cities on the west coast.
Nice images of early Model T cars - but street cars still outnumber the automobiles! Notice also the "cow catcher" on the oncoming street car - errant pedestrians and horses are still a problem- knocks them out of the way rather than run over them!
PHOTO NOTE: The photo images are very clean, crisp, sharp and in exceptional condition - with only slight surface wear noticeable in scans. Actual image are much better in person than they appear in the the scanned image - as if it just came out of the box.
