CD Rewind: The View From 1914

Vintage Seattle has another great find today, with an old photo of the Central District in 1914 taken from a spot near where Harborview Hospital stands today. It shows a very new Providence Hospital, a swath of vacant land between 14th & 12th, and a lot of houses that are probably still standing in the background.

Can you pick out yours? Click through to Vintage Seattle to zoom in on the full-size image.
