The building currently at 20 Mercer Street in Queen Anne was built in 1941 and for awhile it housed a Safeway.   Years later, from 2001 through January 2013 it housed Easy Street Records.  Its next tenant will sadly be Chase bank.

When this burglary happened, Tex’s Tavern hadn’t been in business too long (the building still at that location was built in 1947).   Tex’s eventually closed up shop in the 90s, but the space is now occupied by the Funhouse bar, host to a billion punk shows since 2003.  It’s looking like the building will be razed sooner or later to make way for a seven-story building (with 100+ units).

Canlis remains one of the fanciest, perhaps most expensive of all restaurants in town.  It was once a “charcoal broiler”.  But it was in those days also a fancy charcoal broiler.

A somewhat interesting look at how the forests surrounding Seattle’s city center got doled out, piece by piece and how the neighborhoods were born.
