In the late 1940s, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer held a nationwide competition for an architect for their new building on Wall Street. The design included a large, revolving globe with an eagle on top, which stood above the entryway. The streamlined style of the building, with its glass and flat surfaces, was very popular during the 1930s and 1940s. The newspaper would stay there until the mid-1980s.
