THEN: An unnamed photograph here looks down from Beacon Hill to the flooded mudflats south of Seattle’s Pioneer Place neighborhood either very late in December 1883 or, more likely, early in 1884. The pilings in the bay that are not useful trestles are land speculators freelance markings meant to set precedents of ownership to the tideflats. (Courtesy Museum of History and Industry)
