One Photo a Day From the Emerald City of the Pacific Northwest
Totem House on NW 54th Street, Seattle, originally built in 1938 as a native arts shop, now a seafood and chowder house frequented by tourists. The Totem House and its carvings were made by influential master carver Jimmy John who died in 1988 at age 114, a descendant of Chief Maquinna of the Nuu-Chah-Nulth Nation of the West Coast of Vancouver Island. Several of John's descendants carry on the tradition. Among them are his son, Norman John, grandson, Sanford Williams, and granddaughter, Elsie John, whose works are in demand.
