Tour of Seattle’s Past Landscapes: Waterlines (Online Exhibit by the Burke Museum)

Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture – “We examine the history of Seattle through a focus on its shorelines: the natural and human forces that have shaped them, the ways they have been used and thought about by the people who have lived here, and how this historic understanding might influence urban-development decisions being made today. This is, we believe, an appropriate and compelling framework for viewing the city’s history–one that will engage public audiences and raise themes that are important in American history.”  The on-line flash media presentation focuses on Puget Sound, Duwamish River, and Pioneer Square, and tells the story Seattle through maps, illustrations, photographs and written descriptions from Native and early settler communities.
