Getting to Know Seattle: Old and New

I had to be downtown early, so took the chance to visit my favorite Crumpet Shop. This pic caught my eye as a demonstration of Seattle old and new, living side by side. Old is the dirty old man peep show, and new are the high rise office and condo buildings that form the backdrop.  Gradually, the old is giving way to new construction; the land is too valuable for low rise buildings. But somehow the dirty picture show lingers on. I wonder if the summer tourists that flock to Pike Place Market even see that the theater is there. Hardly fits Seattle’s urban hip image.
