@1: You generally have to pay for 'full-day' (same hours as grades 1-5) Kindergarten in Seattle Public Schools, although some schools have worked out ways to reduce/eliminate the cost. The state only pays for half days.

I thought it was cute because it matched the house.

Canoes are the last transportation mode that actually worked on this corridor. Forward to the past!

I believe the building on the right ended up being the starting location of the Great Fire.

@2 imagine a few years later, when the main railroad terminal was a few blocks west, and there was no seawall. So people would get dropped off from the train in an unfamiliar area that was unlit at night and all the 'sidewalks' were piers over tideflats. Lots of folks (drunks, visitors, rubes, some combination of the three) fell into the flats.

"The Independents (episode 9)": The Outlaws work as taxi drivers to protect an independent cab fleet from the vicious competition.

Wasn't this the plot of DC Cab?

@9 only some lots at the UW are gated (such as montlake). Sometimes they will post people to take your $ at ungated lots (such as near Hec Ed during basketball games). But most of the time you can drive onto the main campus without paying - stopping at the booths is optional.
