A while back I had two people request the same Seattle, Washington, postcard orphan. I ended up disappointing one and sending a different orphan, which she did enjoy but she was hoping for the Seattle. A week or so later I discovered in my bottomless box of orphans another postcard featuring Seattle, quite dramatic as you can see! I quickly sent it off to Natasha. And she returned it with a wonderful message about Seattle.
Natasha writes that construction of the Space Needle, Seattle’s iconic symbol, faced opposition when it was first proposed. People thought it would spoil the view. Natasha notes, “Now it is the view.” And, indeed, it does fit nicely with the skyline and I can’t imagine Seattle without it.
