Okay, this isn’t related to real estate or housing bubbles, but it is related to the Seattle area, and I thought it was interesting enough to make a quick post about it here. I’ve just uploaded a pamphlet / magazine from 1951 called the Seattle Civil Defense Manual to my personal site.
It’s a 25 page booklet that instructs local residents on how to be prepared for an atomic attack. Of particular interest are pages 10 and 11, which contain pictures of Seattle and other Puget Sound points of interest as they existed 54 years ago. Also amusing is the list of hundreds of “Subversive Organizations in the U.S.” on pages 22 and 23. Actually the whole thing is somewhat amusing in a twisted sort of way.
