Scope and content

A fearless photographer and the Puget Sound National Bank building are framed by the debris of the Fidelity Building, 949-55 Broadway, in this photograph from September of 1949. The Fidelity Building on the north east corner of South 11th and Broadway was being demolished by the Roy T. Earley Company to create room for the new F.W. Woolworth Building. The photographer has worked his way out onto the old buildings roof beams so that he can get a better shot of the demolition work in progress. (T.N.T., 9/18/49, p. A-6). TPL-5661
