Great Timelapse: Seattle circa 1988

You can read detail about this timelaspe from the source blog here.

Very nostalgic, as it captures the pre-boom Seattle that I miss so much. HOV lanes? Nah. The Rainier Brewery. The Kingdome(!) Makes me want to watch Almost Live reruns.

In 1988 I was living in Ballard and working in Bellevue. Sue & I were married that summer. Note the shocking lack of traffic. Other than the perpetually under-construction I-90 project over Mercer Island I don’t remember traffic being an issue anywhere around town back then. How times have changed.

This also feeds my well-known lust for driving timelapses. 🙂

Thanks to Roger for the hint on the link. The blog itself has some good stuff in it too – obviously a kindred spirit.

  1. how many million in Seattle Chuck? we have 4 million in the whole of NZ… not counting hobbits!

    so the traffic issues here are more about roads being too narrow than masses of traffic… much the same outcome at times though..
