At the beginning of the 21st century, Seattle - affectionately known as the "Emerald City"- is one of the most influential urban centers on the planet and, with its skyline dominated by the Space Needle, one of the most distinctive. Today, Seattle is home to two of the world's largest industries - aircraft manufacture and computer software development. As Seattle looks to the future it seems certain that the city will continue to expand in size and importance for many years to come. Seattle Then and Now is a glimpse of the Seattle of the past and the city as it is today. Historically important photographs appear alongside views of the same scenes today, showing how the city has managed to preserve its heritage while maintaining a tempo of constant evolution and progress and telling the fascinating story of a city that approaches each anniversary with the vigor and spirit that have made it a unique city.
