Gasworks Park, Seattle

Back in the late 1970’s Seattle cleaned up an oil refinery right in the center of town on the shores. of Lake Union. A major environmental disaster.  Then they made it into a post industrial park.  For several years the sewage sludge  they used as fill to counteract the oil soaked toxic soil produced bumper crops of both tomatoes and marijuana… two seeds which survive the waste water treatment process.

St. Pauls Cathedral, Yakima, WA

St. Paul’s Cathedral, located in Yakima, Washington, United States, is the mother church of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Yakima. Architectural style: Spanish Colonial Revival architecture. 

 On February 8, 1926, excavation for parish church began on the corner of south 12th Avenue and north Chestnut Street. Designed in the Spanish mission style, the layout plan for the church was in the form of a cross with a 125-foot-tower topped by a glazed tile dome and bronze cross. The red tile roof fell in line with the mission-styled architecture and the altar would be under an apse, a dome, with two side altars called transepts.
 
    On Easter Sunday, April 18, 1927, Fr Armstrong said a Solemn Mass in St Paul’s permanent home.  It would be more that twenty-five years before the curch would be fully completed.
 
    On July 18, 1951, Pope Pius XII created the new diocese of Yakima, and named St Paul as the Cathedral Church. The parish was previously part of the Diocese of Seattle. On October 11, 1951, Bishop Joseph Patrick Dougherty was named first bishop of Yakima.
 
    During the April of 1954, the seating capacity of the cathedral was increased from 600 to 800. Four windows, were removed for new confessionals. A terazzo floor was laid  and new oak pews were installed.
