The northern portal to the tunnel with the waterfront hidden on the right and the Hotel York on the right horizon at the northwest corner of First Ave. and Pike Street. The hotel was doomed by the tunneling and razed soon after the tunnel passed below it. Today – for a wile more – the Alaskan Way Viaduct crosses above this portal near Virginia Street. The subject dates from 1904 during the tunnel’s construction.
