Utilikilts in Action

Photo & Text Copyright 2007 Seattle Daily Photo. All rights reserved, including reproduction or republishing.

Best viewed large (click the photo, click "all sizes", click large). I just glimpsed three guys all wearing Utilikilts walking down an alley in the distance. They appeared to be wheeling a big trash container. I barely got the camera out in time to catch this brief sighting. You may remember this picture from last summer and these and these which got a lot of fun comments. That old building is torn down now, and the business moved to Pioneer Square. I've seen people wearing Utilikilts around town, but never had a camera with me, and this time too far away for a detailed shot. Time for that new lens, eh!

It might interest you to know that the cafe and night spot to the left, The Merchant's Cafe, is supposedly the west coast's oldest restaurant, in the same Yessler Way location since 1890. It's currently undergoing remodeling and will reopen in May.

I take your word for it about the Utilikilts. I followed your directions to see a large picture but on my mac it only stayed this same size. So I have no idea was a Utilikilts is. Nice photo though.

Abraham, Thanks for trying! and for the visit. You can click the links in the text portion to see older photos I've taken of utilikilts. I'm not sure why my Flickr page wouldn't cooperate with your Mac platform. . .sigh. Best to you!

Ben, Thank you very much. I always appreciate when you and Meg drop in from your magical NZ for a peek up here in the northern hemisphere.
