THE COLUMNS!

The first “Seattle Now and Then” column, on Jan. 17, 1982.

Here are the original Seattle Times columns upon which Paul Dorpat‘s and Jean Sherrard‘s photo book, Seattle Now & Then: The Historic Hundred, is based.

These are listed in chronological chapter order. Some chapters are based on more than one column.

Click the original publication date(s) below each chapter to see each column — and to discern the original credit for each photo.

Big thanks to Gavin MacDougall and Balazs Dibuz for their superhuman efforts to track down and scan many of these columns!
