I love Seattle and I love the 1960s, so to combine the two into one bright and atomic celebration would have been dazzling!
I was born too late, but there are still ways to enjoy this piece of Seattle history.
– Go to the Space Needle! Everything about this monument screams Mid-Century, from it’s futuristic message to it’s sleek and narrow profile.
Only I sat backwards in the revolving restaurant and was sick for two hours afterwards. Pre-motion sickness was romantic, delicious and a little taste of history! Worth it.
– You can also own a piece of vintage Seattle!
I picked these beauties up at an estate sale, nuzzling and petting them all the way home. Love the retro colours, tall narrow profile and striking etchings of Seattle landmarks.
I found some other pieces of 1962 Seattle on Etsy as well, but I will add- it wasn’t easy! Where is it all? I thought these three items were fun and would give you a taste of Seattle in Don Draper’s day. Yes, I dropped the D word, and it’s been done too much, but I swear he’s in that vintage poster- wining and dining some poor woman in the revolving restaurant! And of course she’s ravishing and not sick at all.
