Circus-Tents-S.-Center-ca.1912.WEB_-500×295

The Cirucs site here is easy to figure because the Troy Laundry appears in the photograph, far left. The view looks northwest from near Harrison Street and between 4th and 5th Avenues. The laundry was on the northeast corner of Nob Hill Avenue and Republican Street. Those tents cover ground that is now shared by the north side of the Memorial Stadium with McCaw Hall and the Arena as far north as Mercer Street.
