Seattle, WA Photos

Set on the coast surrounded by mountains of the U.S. Northwest, Seattle got its economic start selling goods to those rushing north to prospect for gold. The resulting heritage buildings are now complemented by the modern skyscrapers of those mining today's intellectual industries. Over 565 original photos provide a visual travel guide to Seattle.
