Throwback Thursday–College Inn

Dark, cozy, and allegedly haunted, the College Inn has been providing reasonably-priced food, drinks and housing since the 1970s. The Tudor Revival-style hotel that houses the pub was built in anticipation of the crowds of sightseers descending on Seattle for the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exhibition in 1909, and has seen an array of restaurants, confectioners and cafes occupy its ground floors.

Here’s the College Inn in 1928:

And here it is today:

It’s nice to see some things don’t change very much.
