It’s amazing to me how you can spend your whole life in a place and still guess so little about it, however it’s true for a lot of people, however I never knew it was true about me until a few weeks ago, when I met my new neighborâ€¦ This guy is a new immigrant, just moved here from overseas, and he knew more about Seattle than I did, and I have lived here for over forty years! I believe you just are accustomed to your surroundings, and don’t tend to ask too numerous questions, at least I never did.
- I sat down with Dahmesh for an minute, and l received more about my hometown of Seattle, WA than ever before.
In 1926, Seattle elected Bertha Knight Landes as the mayor, making her the first female mayor in American history! I believe that shows how Seattle has consistently been a legitimately progressive place to live. In 1889 the Great Seattle Fire was started by a pot of warm glue overturning, and destroying almost all of the wooden-framed company district. The craziest area is that the Seattle town leaders decided not to rebuild on the old spot, however on top of the new spot. This means that new day Seattle is 22 feet higher than the original settlementâ€¦ One other thing I l received was about the giant pig out in front of Pike Place Market. I had seen the bronze beast a hundred times before, however never knew that the name of the famous Seattle landmark was Rachel. I had to thank my neighbor for the history lesson.
