    I'm totally lost on this one. At first I thought this must be Avalon Way near the intersection of Spokane St but now I'm not so sure. Is this looking West or East toward Pigeon Point?

    Ahh.... now I see it .... It is Pigeon Point in the background. One of the houses on top of the bluff is still visible in Google Maps: maps.google.com/maps?q=seattle,+wa&hl=en&ll=47.57...

    Any clue what tavern that is? The sign furthest away looks like it could by Marty's Tavern (Marty's was at 2301 Spokane). But the one closer looks like it could be the Harbor Island Inn (at 1022 Spokane).

    Other taverns on Spokane around this time from my notes are:

    25 and also at 501 - Brass Tavern
    101 - Dutchman Tavern
    1122 - Nifty Tavern
    2305 - Sully's Tavern
    2370 - The Blew Eagle

    Clicking on the link in the photo caption takes you to a high-resolution tiff file, which is a little easier to see. The furthest sign does indeed seem to be Marty's, and V-G Woodcraft is listed at 2319 Spokane, which confirms the block. The middle one looks to be called the Harbor Tavern - perhaps an earlier or later name for Sully's?
