Redstart

Tubs

Tubs opened in Seattle's University District in the early 1980's. It was a place where one could rent a hot tub or sauna by the hour. I am not sure when it closed but for at least 7 years, the abandoned icon was a mecca for graffiti artists.

Tubs was demolished in 2014 to make way for a mixed-use apartment building.

The first two photos were taken in 2010 from a car as I made my first visit to the U District. I took the others in 2011.
