Seattle: Pioneer Square sites

Fine building walking tour that did three thematic tours.

National Park Service Yukon Gold Rush Site. Good movie, narrated by Hal Holbrooke. Puts goldrush in the context of the depression of 1893.

Firefighters memorial—three extremenly life-like bronze figures wearing the uniforms, including oxygen masks. Not very effective—too realistic?? Poorly sited on the sidewalk? Behind it was a broken piece of building, pieces of stone with fallen firefighters’s names… that part worked.

A memorial put up by the DAR to those who died in WWI, on one side of the stone—on the other side of the stone was a memorial to the USS Maine, destroyed in Havana Harbor—the plaque, it says on it, was made from a piece of the Maine.
