Bronze footprint and signature sculptures of Microsoft co-founders and native sons, Paul Allen and Bill Gates, are part of an in-concrete display in the sidewalks that surround the Nordstrom downtown Seattle store. Allen and Gates started Microsoft in 1975, making their mark in history through their youthful mastery of coding and development of software for the personal computing revolution. They are now two of the world's wealthiest people and two of the Pacific Northwest's largest philanthropists and idea/real property developers.
