The rise of the Space Needle and KeyArena

THEN: Work on the Washington State Pavilion began early in 1960. For Frank Shaw it wasn't until the early summer of '61 that the Space Needle suddenly emerged from the pavilion's roofline and kept on ascending. From his apartment window, Shaw photographed this view of the superimposed landmarks on Sept. 16, 1961.
