Our Daily Sykes #172 – Smith Tower from the as yet unopened Alaskan Way Viaduct

The opening of the Alaskan Way Viaduct to traffic missed April Fools by three days. Traffic started testing the longevity of the Great Wall of Seattle on the 4th of April, 1953. A few days earlier Horace and others walked the length of the new highway to tale snapshots in all directions and from both levels. Perhaps it was a camera club organized event, for the photographs show that it was not crowded.
