Once upon a time, I worked in an office on the back side of Pike Place Market and my apartment was just a couple blocks away. I lived in the market. I can’t begin to guess how many sandwiches I ordered from the walk-up window at Three Girls Bakery. And the cookies… oh, my the cookies. Come to think of it, it’s been a long time since I’ve set foot in Pike’s Place Market. It might be time to introduce my daughter to this Seattle landmark.
The Three Girls Bakery has been around since 1912, and was one of Seattle’s first legitimate businesses to be entirely owned by women, a Mrs. Jones and two of her friends.
Here are a few more shots of Pike Place Market from back in the day:
And nary a flying fish…
