An early 1930s aerial of the waterfront reveals the open hanger for the Gorst Air Taxi at the water end of Pier 3/54, left-of-center. The comparison that follows takes the detail of the open hanger pulled from this aeiral and prints it side-by-side with the same hanger after it was moved to the southwest corner of Lake Union. I believe that steamer in the bay is the Alexander – or something close to it.
