Second Avenue South, Seattle 1960

Taken from 1960 Polk City Directory

Second Avenue South
From Yesler Way to Hanford Street
{This street ended at about the middle of where Qwest Field is today. The last number is 736, which is about where Dearborn (my boundary) would have intersected, but there are no intersections between there and Hanford St. over a mile to the south).

Note: See Second Avenue Extension article for the story of that confusing street.
