Image 681 - Denny Hill Regrade Showing Four Streams
This is one of a series of images of Seattle street regrade
projects. Over a period of years, many of Seattle's hills were
washed away or dug out to improve property values. Houses and
businesses on the tops of the hills were forced to move, not always
agreeably. The house perched precariously at the top of the
remaining hill might have been owned by a holdout.
