Seattle Now & Then: The Historic Hundred

A celebration of Seattle’s history, identity, and sense of self, this new book features 100 selections from “Seattle Now & Then,” a column in the Seattle Times’ Sunday magazine that’s been pairing historic photos with present-day shots for over 36 years, started by Paul Dorpat. Seattle Now & Then contains fascinating glimpses of history and reflects on how our city has and hasn’t changed. What looks different, for instance, between this 1907 view of Pike Place Market and the market we know today?
