The ruins looking north on Front Street (First Ave.) from near the foot of Cherry Street. It is a puzzle to me how the photogapher got this hight above the street in all that wreckage. Note how the street ends drop gradually into Elliott Bay supported by rubble. This is pre-fire rubble. When the city started to clean up after this “great fire” much more was added to it.
