Thumb 191997
Dating from the 1870s to the first few years of the 20th century, these records contain glimpses into the lives and activities of a growing Seattle. In letters, petitions, reports, claims, bids, and early City ordinances, City of Seattle activities are documented through the voices of Seattle residents and City officials struggling to address the many issues faced by a city experiencing enormous growth and change. You'll find material relating to the Great Seattle Fire of 1889, the development of the water supply and sewer systems, the Fire and Police Departments, grading and street improvements, housing, public health, and many other issues, especially as they relate to the rapid growth of a large city.
