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.
