Pioneer Building Through the Alley
Viewing of the Pioneer Buiding through an alley. The Pioneer Building is a Richardsonian Romanesque stone, red brick, terra cotta and cast iron building in Seattle's Pioneer Square District. Completed in 1892, the Pioneer Building was designed by architect Elmer Fisher, who designed several of the historic district's new buildings following the Great Seattle Fire of 1889. Behind me is Occidental Square. This alley divides the square between 1st Ave S. and Occidental Ave. S.
