Did you know that SODO was once home to its own radio station? KRSC was one of the Pacific Northwest`s first ever AM radio stations and also expanded to the region`s first television station, eventually becoming KING-TV!

To Kenji Stoll, the track that cuts through our district is "a gateway into Seattle for communities in the South Puget Sound.” In this piece at 1550 4th Ave S, @_yokenji highlights the “tragic beauty of impermanence” as we look at a pattern of flowers through the lens of a military viewfinder.

What does this piece mean to you?

Throwback to the days of tideflats and horse-drawn carriages; where every photo told a story of hard work, simpler times, and of course good beer from the old Rainier Brewery!

Did you know that SODO once had residential housing? Well, over 100 years ago, you could have stayed in the Bon Apartments on Holgate and 9th for just $1.25 a week! If only rent was that cheap now...
