(Unique: 37269) Date: 03-25-1925 Description: Aerial view of City Center. Although taken in March of 1925, this view of Tacoma's City Center still shows the contrast between its office buildings and other edifices and the (then) relatively undeveloped industrial Tideflats across the waterway. The Pierce County Courthouse with its 230-foot tower can be seen in the distance; closer near the foreground are the Puget Sound National Bank Bldg. with its familiar spire, the nearly completed Washington Building, the smaller Rust Building, and nearest to the 11th St. Bridge (now Murray Morgan Bridge), the Tacoma Building.
