Long Description:
Seattle's Burke Building sat on the corner of Second and Marion Streets from 1889 to 1971, and was then razed to make room for the Federal Building. Decorative elements from the Burke Building were built into the plaza, and the Romanesque entry arch still stands on Second Avenue.
Year photo was taken: 1900
