Posted on April 29, 2022 by WillemFriday/ you look nice today These pictures are from my walk back home from the Bartell pharmacy on First Hill. This is Hofius House at 1104 Spring Street, First Hill. Designed by German-born architects Spalding and Umbrecht and constructed in 1902. The Roman Catholic Archdiocese began housing the Seattle Archbishop in this residence in 1920. The Capitol Hill Presbyterian Church at Harvard and Howell held a last service in June 2018, and then closed its doors for good, it seems. The church was built just about 100 years ago, in 1923. Hey! The tourists are back, even if just a handful. I waved at them. (Maybe I shouldn’t have. I could the city’s reputation for stand-offishness to neighbors and visitors alike, called ‘The Seattle Freeze’). Spring leaves on the trees by Seattle Central College on Broadway. I hate graffiti, but hey— if the graffiti complements me, it makes it a little better. Maybe.
