    Caption on image: Portion of the business district south of Madison and the 42 story Smith Tower, Seattle, Wash.On verso of image: Erected 1914. This great building with 600 offices, with exterior trim of bronze and interior of steel finished to resemble highly grained mahogony, besides possessing every convience required in the business day, has a Chinese Room adjoining and opening onto the observation balcony. This magnificent room is highly decorated in heavy and finely carved Chinese teak wood, wrought by native workmen, embellished with myriads of porcelain panels in varying designs, replicas of those in ancient Chinese Temples. No room in America is more gorgeous. Visited each year by thousands who are afforded a beautiful vista of Seattle, the bay and lakes and the snow capped mountain ranges, with Mount Rainier and Mount Baker in the distance.Filed in: Seattle--Buildings and Stores. less
