Historic Seattle and Historic Wallingford recently co-hosted an illustrated talk by historian Paul Dorpat and photographer Jean Sherrard on their new book Seattle Now & Then: The Historic Hundred. The Seattle Channel filmed the event, and you can watch it online here.
Dorpat’s popular column “Seattle Now and Then” has appeared in The Seattle Times more than 1,800 times since 1982. Each column told a unique story about Seattle by juxtaposing a historic “then” photo with a “now” image of the same place. Most of Paul’s recent “now” photos have been taken by Seattle teacher, actor, and photographer Jean Sherrard. Seattle Now & Then: The Historic Hundred is a culmination of Paul and Jean’s partnership and showcases the most compelling columns in a beautiful and remarkable coffee-table book.
