SEATTLE CONFIDENTIAL NO. 1

Scenes from Seattle – or near it – so confidential we don’t know what they are.  Some, we imagine, are erased forever. Others you may know, but we do not.

Tempting here is the street sign posted on the pole at the center. Tempting but not fulfilling. It cannot be read. Note that the street or drive that crosses the scene, left to right, continues on the far right with a steep handrail. The two planks for a sidewalk suggest a neighborhood that was a late addition to the city and so sometimes got the short end of public works support. And this IS a public works photo. So it has a public works purpose - perhaps the gravel messing the boardwalk.
