Image 63 - Regrade at 2nd Ave. & Virginia St. Seattle

Note the man posed at the front of the locomotive. He appears in several O. T. Frasch photos, but we do not know who he is.

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.
