Burke Building, 1900 and 2012

The Burke Building, 921 Second Avenue, Seattle, Washington. Elements of this building have been incorporated into the current Federal Building. The center arch sits very close to its former location.
The arch from the Burke Building now stands in front of the Henry M. Jackson Federal Building


This blog is devoted to displaying vintage newspaper advertisements for the Corona Four typewriter, which was made from 1924 until 1941. Many of these advertisements are from the Seattle Times. The address given in many of them is 921 Second Avenue. This address is now home to the Henry M. Jackson Federal Building. Research on the former Burke Building and its features will also be a part of this blog.
