About Paul Dorpat: Beginning in 1982, Seattle historian and photographer Paul Dorpat published the “Now & Then” column in The Seattle Times: Pacific Magazine. The column originally compared two photographs, “repeating” a view of downtown Seattle taken in 1919 at Pike Street and 4th Avenue with a view of the identically located but very different Pike Street and 4th Avenue taken in 1981. Dorpoat continued this series of Seattle photographs — her streets, lakes, docks, buildings, bridges, hills, regrades, visitations, occasions.
About Jean Sherrard: Jean Sherrard has worked as an actor, writer, director, photographer, teacher, carpenter and private detective. Co-founder of the Globe Radio Repertory, he wrote and directed scores of radio plays for National Public Radio. His photos and articles have been featured in numerous publications.
