Pre-fire (shortly before) look to waterfront from a point near First (Front) and Union. To the right of center two railroad lines nearly touch – the “Rams’ Horn” on the left and the Seattle Lake Shore and Eastern on the right. It is there near the waterfront foot of University Street that a water bucket brigade was able to thrown enough water at the trestles to prevent the fire from continuing north along it.
