Stealth Starbucks at Broadway and Roy 1932 and 2009

Looking south on Broadway. In the 2009 photo it was opening day for Starbucks' stealthy "Roy Street Coffee & Tea" cafe. It will close in April 2019.

 

In the 1932 shot "Berlin Cleaners" was in the space De Luxe would occupy a couple years later, until the present day. In the distance across the street Piggly Wiggly is visible.

 

(More on that Piggly Wiggly in my CHS article).

 

Old photo is Seattle Municipal Archives 50005.
