Opening of Municipal Street Railway on Ballard Bridge, 1918

The Seattle Municipal Archives is located in City Hall and open during the week for the publics' perusal. Contained inside is a giant collection of historic photos, recordings, maps, and anything else you can imagine relating to the city. For those outside of the city, though, there is also an official Flickr page with a large selection of material from the archives. Highly recommended viewing!
