Streetcars at Second and Yesler circa 1915 to 1919. At left is the Smith Tower which was completed in 1914. At center background is the Frye Hotel which is still there today. The low-rise building in the foreground was the location of Don’s Oyster House, facing Yesler Way where the cars are parked at the curb.
