0. Columbia-Tower-look-down-at-Pier-48-+-Genny's-March-1994WEB

This 1994 snapshot from the Columbia Tower (by Genny McCoy) reveals the spead then of the container fields south of King Street, the growing sprawl for parking and staging surrounding Colman Dock, far right, and the hypertrophy of Pier 48, with the loss of all other piers south of Colman Docks until the East Waterway. At this time, I believe, the Seattle Bookfair was still being held in the unheaded but inspired space (for a book fair) inside Pier 48.
