CHS Pics | This week in Capitol Hill pictures

Capitol Hill and the nearby lends itself to great imagery. Social media is filled with images of the places and streets around us. We share some of the best here. To be included and help us find your stuff, use the #capitolhillseattle tag on Instagram or ping @capitolhillseattle or @jseattle via Twitter.

We still also have lots of love for the CHS Flickr Pool and its more than 36,000 photographs — most of Capitol Hill images, many glorious, some technically amazing. The pool is a mix of contributions from Capitol Hill shutterbugs. With changes at Flickr, its days of an amazing, free for most repository of great photography have shifted but we’re still watching.

Interested in being part of it? If we like your photo and it helps us tell the story, we may feature it on CHS so please include your name and/or a link to your website so we can properly credit you. Interested in working as a paid CHS contributor for scheduled assignments? Drop us a line. Thanks for sharing!

Taking it way back to 2012 — The building that houses @rheinhausseattle was originally built as a candy factory and most recently was home to Majale’s hookah bar and Dixon’s Furniture. Before the finish work could start, Mētis staff was tasked to rehab the entire building. We installed extensive sections of shoring, dug & poured numerous footings, removed structural members damaged by fire in the distant past, removed & replaced columns compromised by rot, replaced large sections of the floor system, and added sheer walls & accompanying grade beams. We then were able to turn our attention to building heavy timber mezzanine structures, fabricating raised fir panels & corbels, and repurposing found objects from Germany to create back bars that looked as though they predated the building itself. For a carpenter, life doesn’t get much better than a project like that!

    • Confident, straight white men are the devil, don’t you forget it. They also aren’t allowed to ever express an opinion or voice a concern because they are privileged! Privileged devils, and we need to make sure they feel bad for being alive. And guilty, almost forgot.

      • The “Bro Free Hill” stencils are vandalism….someone has to clean them up. I can understand the sentiment, but you can’t keep certain people out of the neighborhood just because you don’t like their “type.”

      • Confident….you mean drunk, loud and obnoxious? I don’t think bros include every high income white male.

      • I guess I missed the memo. I didn’t even know you had to be white to be a bro. Or even male. Or straight, for that matter. Though…to be fair….”woo girl” does kind of cover the male aspect. So yeah, maybe you DO gotta be male.

  1. Whenever I look at the Ellen Forney piece (Capitol Hill Light Rail Station) my mind drifts to a certain album cover: Loverboy, Get Lucky.
