The Origin of Wandering
I first came across Stephen Cysewski’s photos of Seattle in the 1970s a few years ago.

Sign of the Times
In this photo, workers are taking down the sign at the former Queen Anne Easy Street records location down the street from the KCTS 9 studio. As we gear up for the launch of our new arts and culture show, PIE, we tip our metaphorical hat to a Seattle business where many local and touring musical acts connected with their fans. For the music community there’s a small silver lining in this rainy photo as Easy Street’s West Seattle location is still open.
