Tacoma, like most cities across the nation, has changed its appearance over time, creating many different urban landscapes. This phenomenon was apparent throughout the area as landowners, developers, community organizations, and government agencies all contributed to the city s growth and transformation. The changing landscape was further impacted by fires, earthquakes, and other acts of nature, resulting in a rich mosaic of old and new. The history of Vanishing Tacoma illustrates the city s past and present landscapes and honors the historic properties that still remain."

Portland at the end of World War II was an international port and a powerhouse of the timber and shipbuilding industries. Oregon's largest city grew and changed in the decades that followed, adding new industries and population. It also endured reductions in shipbuilding capacity, a devastating flood, a declining timber industry, urban renewal, freeway construction, and social change. By the 1990s, a wave of globalization and big-box retail marketing swelled shipping at the city's port and swept away a surprising number of Portland's businesses, which remain in the fond memories of Portlanders. A few of these memorable icons include the stores Meier and Frank, J. K. Gill, Payless Drug, and Sprouse-Reitz; the restaurants Henry Theile, Jolly Joan, Tik Tok, Yaw's Top Notch, and Waddle's; the Jantzen Beach Amusement Park; the Portland Hotel; the Broadway, Fox, and Orpheum theaters; Henry Weinhard's brewery; the Ramblin' Rod television show; and Portland Wrestling.

Though Seattle is still a young city, growing and changing, much of its short past is already lost-but not forgotten. Generations of Seattleites have fond memories of restaurants, local television shows, stores, and other landmarks that evoke a less sophisticated, more informal city. This new book explores Seattle at a time when timber and fish were more lucrative than airplanes and computers, when the city was a place of kitschy architecture and homespun humor and was full of boundless hope for a brighter future. These rare and vintage images hearken back to the marvels of the 1962 World's Fair, shopping trips to Frederick & Nelson and I. Magnin, dinners at Rosellini's, dancing at the Trianon Ballroom, traveling on the ferry Kalakala, rooting for baseball's Rainiers, and local personalities including Stan Boreson, J. P. Patches, and Wunda Wunda.

"Architectural Flourishes: Tacoma, Washington" is a pictorial guide illustrates the features that capture the city's architecture legacy. The distinctive pre-Modernist examples of the late nineteenth through early twentieth century are liberally disbursed throughout the downtown, Old Town, Stadium, Ruston Point and Proctor districts. Over 230 photographs detail unique and distinctive exterior traits, statuary and notable design flourishes.Tacoma was incorporated in 1875 following its selection two years earlier as the western terminus of the Northern Pacific Railroad. The railroad along with the city's deep-water port enabled significant commercial and industrial development leading up to the twentieth century.Affluence and population migration followed with prime examples of the era's architecture mirroring the development. The most prominent styles include Greek Revival, Richardson Romanesque, Neo-Renaissance, Colonial Revival, Tudor Revival, Italian Renaissance Revival, Classical Revival and Beaux Arts.The most distinctive building traits featured during this period were external design flourishes, decorative tile and molded masonry. This detailing often contrasts markedly with the almost sterile geometrical functionality of contemporary constructions. A viewer can easily recognize the artistry and craftsmanship behind these increasingly vanishing touches.The Klondike Gold Rush of 1898 contributed towards Seattle eclipsing Tacoma in regional prominence. Seattle completely redesigned and rebuilt its downtown and commercial shipping industry following a devastating fire in 1889. For this reason, pre-Fire architecture is nonexistent within Seattle's Pioneer Square, but evident within Tacoma.Tacoma was briefly considered a major destination for automobile racing and featured the third largest silent motion picture production studio in the world located at Titlow Beach in 1924.During the mid to late twentieth century, Tacoma experienced a steady decline in perception and reputation. The Great Depression decimated local industry. In the 1930s, the infamous Aroma of Tacoma tainted breathing. The unsavory acrid odor was produced by local pulp and paper manufactures located in the local tide flats. In November 1940, the Tacoma Narrows Bridge connecting the city with Kitsap County dramatically collapsed into Puget Sound following only four months of operation.As misfortune piled upon calamity, Tacoma's downtown became abandoned and virtually uninhabitable. Crime rates rose significantly and organized gang activity solidified its presence.The city's reputation skidded to the bottom in the late 1980s, yet the decline proved reversible. During the 1990s, a sustained and resilient renovation program began with the recruitment of a University of Washington campus, world-class art museum construction and extensive downtown redevelopment. Rather than constructing characterless glass rectangular structures, the focus became the rejuvenation of existing buildings.The interiors were often gutted and reconfigured. Most importantly, the exteriors were freshened and revitalized. This collective coordinated effect by the preservationists opened the downtown into a unique and distinctive portal to the past while still servicing contemporary needs.The results have become a re-appreciation towards the aesthetic value of architecture in elevating lifestyle. This edition's images bear testament to this critical detailing component.
