Saturday/ the Volunteer Park Conservatory

Here is one more picture from Volunteer Park on Friday, of the Conservatory building.  The Victorian-style structure is said to be modeled loosely on The Crystal Palace in London’s Hyde Park. It was one of the first buildings to be erected on the young City of Seattle’s Volunteer Park grounds, and completed in 1912.

The Volunteer Park Conservatory was nicely lit up on Friday night. There was a function with a live band and a bar inside.  I cheated a little bit with my picture, by boosting the pastel colors with a digital filter.
