A chronicle of prohibition-era Seattle
Chronicles of the Pike Place Market and Prohibition-era Seattle

Author Brad Holden's impassioned investigation of prohibition-era Seattle was sparked by his discovery of a copper moonshining still in a musty Seattle basement. When an unexpected trove of historical documents revealed that the original owner of the still had been jailed for supplying moonshine to his neighbors, Holden was off at a run to record fascinating tales along with artifacts ranging from never-before-seen photographs to a search warrant from 1928. His book exposes captivating stories of that era in all its glory, including interconnections of key people, places, and events. The book also features photographs of prohibition-related artifacts, some shared at this event, that Holden has uncovered, along with their stories.
