Overview

Seattle is a vibrant city, a hotbed for start-up businesses, the arts and innovative culture. The clean air and water, natural beauty of the surrounding mountains and waterways, and mild marine climate must be entrepreneurially intoxicating because so major companies got their start here. Connected to the Pacific Ocean via the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Puget Sound, Seattle has evolved into a cosmopolitan city with a bustling container and cruise ship port and strong ties to Asia. Yet Seattle still retains its hometown feel as a "city of neighborhoods" loaded with community spirit, civic pride and multi-ethnic diversity. Photographer Stuart Westmorland's stunning images skillfully capture the creative energy and jubilant spirit of this beautiful Pacific Northwest city. The Space Needle, Seattle Public Market, Experience Music Project Museum, and Seattle Center are just a few places that are captured in this keepsake.

    Sharing this book with my family was such a treat. Each and ever

    Sharing this book with my family was such a treat. Each and every picture was taken in such a way, we all felt whisped away into nostalgia. My father was born and raised in the Seattle area (me too) and has spent the majority of his 85 years here. To share this book with my dad and the rest of our family at his 85th birthday party was over the top! We felt like we went on a tor of Seattle, enjoying each and every picture, this book was very hard to put down ... which tells you it will be one that becomes tattered and torn by folks thumbing through enjoying the simple pleasure of being taken away and enjoying all the wonderful sites of Seattle. We all loved the book!
