Looking north down Westlake to Lake Union from the nearly new Medical Dental Building. Much of the “Old Quarter,” the name for the part of Denny Regrade left untouched when the first lone effort at razing the hill reached the east side of 5th Avenue and stopped. Left of center is the triangular block at 6th and Virginia seen with billboards in the scene above. Stewart street is on the right. The darkest part of this scene is the “urban forest” of Denny Park at the corner of 9th Avenue and Denny Way, and here towards the photograph’s upper-right corner. The shadows of hazed-over silloutettes of some of the remnants of World War One’s unused wooden fleet can be seen anchored in Lake Union, upper right.
