When most of Seattle s original founders settled at today s Pioneer Square, William Bell set up his own neighborhood a couple of miles up the waterfront. Bell s Town grew in the early 20th century, when Seattle leveled the adjacent Denny Hill, and the newly flat regrade became a low-rent district of bars, hotels, and industry. In recent decades, Belltown has become one of the nation s fastest growing urban neighborhoods with upscale condominium towers and fashionable restaurants. This new volume chronicles in more than 200 images the colorful history of this diverse and constantly changing area. Readers will enjoy early glimpses of such landmarks as the Seafair Torchlight Parade, the Seattle Center Monorail, the legendary Dog House, and the Edgewater Inn."
