Thanks for highlightin' my hometown!
Also check out The Seattle Lexicon, the Museum of History and Industry (where I spent many a happy hour wandering in my yoof) and HistoryLink. org.

Actually, for Seattle, HistoryLink rules: Washington Magic Lanterns, Olmsted Parks in Seattle--The majority of Seattle's parks were designed by John Charles Olmsted the stepson of Frederick Law Olmsted, who designed Central Park--and legend has it that Elvis pumped gas for his Cadillac at the Hat ‘n’ Boots while filming It Happened at the World’s Fair in Seattle in 1963. And here's the history and cybertour for my neighborhood.

In my opinion, The Seattle Lexicon has enough bogue expressions that no one here ever said, that it makes me leary to link it. But it does mention a lot of places that are gone--the Doghouse for one.

I think the Lexicon has it's anything, I take it with a grain of salt. I'm sure I have some more Seattle links somewhere and Kokogiak's site is an excellent resource as well.
