The leveling of the hills

Photograph showing the scale of the leveling of ground in Seattle during construction works around Denny Hill at the start of the twentieth century. The project cleared and levelled an area of around 27 city blocks and used 20,000,000 US gallons of water per day to blast away the hillside.
