This post deals with Seattle's Smith Tower (L.C. Smith Building) that was completed in 1914. Its Wikipedia entry is here.
For much of my early life, the Smith Tower was the tallest building in Seattle, tallest in the western USA, and it was a big deal to visit the observation deck and gaze down on the rest of downtown.
If memory serves, the same floor housed the Chinese Room. The Wikipedia entry states: "The Chinese Room, whose name was retired following the 2016 renovation, derived from the carved teak ceiling and blackwood furniture that adorned the room on opening. The room was furnished by the last Empress of China, Cixi. Furnishings include the famous Wishing Chair. The chair incorporates a carved dragon and a phoenix, which, when combined, portends marriage. According to folklore, any wishful unmarried person who sits in it would be married within a year."
The above photo was taken in the Chinese Room at a college fraternity Pledge Dance. That's me and my date. I'm not sure if we're seated in the chair just mentioned. Perhaps not, because we never married one another.
