The nonfiction book Seattle Prohibition tells the story of the city a hundred years ago.

This sounds like a good book, so I'll get a copy (is there a local book store where it's available)

And I humbly suggest reading Eastern Span by Rick Paulas


Seattle was never a good party town. Portland on the other hand started earlier and went longer. when Seattlites were still drinking in Maynard's cow pastures, Portlanders were enjoying block after block of brothels, rumhouses and gentleman's opium dens.


I wonder if Johnny Schnarr was related to the late Frankie Schnarr


My other fav story was the brothel built by the crooked police chief AND Mayor.

Please wait...
