I fell in love with this the minute I saw it. This rustic log and stone Arts & Crafts era transit shelter was built by developers Charles Denny and Elbert Blaine in 1901 as their real estate office, with an eye to converting it to a street car shelter after their parcels in the Madrona neighborhood were sold. I thought it was charming in its setting next to its lily pond inhabited by ducks.
