Sunny old Spokane [WA]

Far on the other side of Washington state from Seattle lays Spokane, and I had an hour or so Sunday to take some quick photos while I was passing through. Here we go...

1) Starting my jaunt

2) Spokane County Courthouse across the river

3) USPS

4) Spokane's shopping district - I am personally impressed by this city's ability to retain large department stores downtown when much larger cities cannot.

5) Art Deco: City Hall / Fox Theatre

6) Downtown Riverfront Park

[IMG]http://i58.************/2v3j6f9.jpg[/IMG]

7) Opera House & convention center

[IMG]http://i61.************/1937p.jpg[/IMG]

8) Massive expansion of their convention facilities along with a new large convention center hotel is eating up what was a huge parking lot. Good job.

9) Random downtown

[IMG]http://i59.************/2dj52kl.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i60.************/9l8o5c.jpg[/IMG]

10) This old hotel is being converted into apartments, a win for downtown

[IMG]http://i60.************/2s5y7ug.jpg[/IMG]

10) Speaking of hotels, the grande dame of old Spokane, the Davenport. First hotel in the US to be air conditioned I found out recently. The more you know...

[IMG]http://i57.************/2u4ld0y.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i58.************/4ig5g2.jpg[/IMG]

10) I digress...a bit more random downtown

[IMG]http://i61.************/2ywth6d.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i61.************/rhj0r8.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i59.************/34xgbw2.jpg[/IMG]


They sure knew how to mask a parking garage back in the day (!)

[IMG]http://i59.************/27wvxxy.jpg[/IMG]

This was the hometown of a certain old crooner...

[IMG]http://i59.************/9hnp4w.jpg[/IMG]

Glad someone is renovating this looker

[IMG]http://i62.************/2v84l12.jpg[/IMG]

I see so much potential in this city. That's all for now though...

Wow, I was born and raised and Seattle but have very little impressions of Spokane. I agree, it has a lot of potential! Thank you for posting. I ve been inspired to drive east.
