1886: North from 1st Ave & James St. Just a few months before this photo was taken, members of the Knights of Labor fomented an organized movement against Chinese workers, and hundreds of them were forcibly rounded up by an angry mob and brought to ships for deportation. Three years after this photo was taken, nearly all of these buildings were leveled in the Great Seattle Fire of 1889.  Until the early 1880's, the street corner at the left was the site of Henry Yesler's home.
