Paul and Jean have created a real treasure for all of us who love Seattle. Much more than a beautiful art book, this is a fascinating history of how Seattle has changed, and it arrives at the perfect moment when Seattleites are focused on that subject. This book entertains and answers questions, but it also makes us think about the future of our precious city.
The beauty, depth and rhythm of Seattle are found in the hearts, minds and souls of those who built, lived, worked and played in it.
I am thankful for this walk through memory lane and the reinforcement of our dynamic city. It gives us life and legacy.
