Seattle has been reaching for the sky for many years. After the forty-two story Smith Tower was completed in 1914, it remained the tallest building on the west coast until being surpassed in 1962 by the Space Needle. Between the two structure lies all of central Seattle, with a constantly undulating and growing skyline of beautiful architectural feats. This book celebrates the beauty of the skyline taken as a whole, in every conceivable lighting condition, and also studies several structure close-up. It is Volume 2 in the “Seeing Seattle” collection by William Hoard.
