About 43 years before Hal took his parade photo looking south on 3rd with his back to Union Street, a photogrpaher named Brown took this snap of the temporary booths set up in that block for the Elks Lodge’s 1903 Seattle Fair and Carnival. Note the gate at the Univesity Street end of the block. One paid to attend. Plymouth Church crowds the upper-left corner. Perhaps the perishioners had passes.
