The Alibi Room and the Market Theater gum wall are just beyond this passage in Post Alley, Pike Place Market. Post Alley runs through and below the historic 101 year old sanitary public market and got its name from the hitching posts, now gone, where vendors would secure their horses when bringing goods to market back in the day. One of my fellow Seattle Flickrites, Mary Wit, upon seeing this photo wrote, "This is my favorite spot on earth...the bellybutton of our fair city. The cobblestones were once ballast for ships returning from trips to faraway lands. Listen carefully and you can hear stories whispered on the wind that blows through the Alley."
