Puget Soundings

Photographs of poles and wires, icons of Seattle streets, by the great Mary Randlett

Select covers of Puget Soundings. I first learned about the magazine, which was published by the Junior League of Seattle from 1929–1983(?), through
Javas Lehn, and then found a big stash of them through Abe Books. The art direction throughout is pretty great.
