Colman dock was originally built by Scottish engineer and Seattle pioneer James Colman. This scene depicts the second Colman dock of the mid 1930's just before the Puget Sound Navigation Company modernized the dock to match their signature ferry the MV Kalakala. Known as the first streamlined vessel in the world, the Kalakala was in operation from 1935 to 1967. Currently the ferry is undergoing renovations and will hopefully be restored to it's original splendor one day. Colman Building on 1st Avenue, is still connected to Colman Dock or Pier 52 as it was in it's original days. If you find yourself in Seattle, stop in to this Starbucks, grab a coffee and have a look!
