I’m sure you’ve walked past the synagog at 15th & Union and noticed the four old columns standing there by themselves. I’ve always wondered what that corner must have looked like back when those columns actually supported a building.
This week I got a peek at it on the endlessly cool Vintage Seattle site:
A commenter there says the temple was built in 1908 and torn down in the early 70s due structural issues.
We’ve got a number of very cool old temples that still survive in the neighorhood, but this was by far the most ornate. Too bad it isn’t still around.
