SEATTLE CENTER— During the 1962 Seattle World's Fair, noted artist Eddie Sato took a bunch of photos of "the world of tomorrow." Those photos ended up in a Chicago thrift shop where they were recently uncovered. Check out our gallery to get a real sense of what it felt like to be there when Seattle introduced itself to the world.

SEATTLE— With the news that Seattle workers will soon have a minimum wage of $15/hour, we decided to take a look around the rental scene to see what one could realistically rent if living on that salary. Studios, it turns out, is the correct answer.
