Larry Reid, curator at Fantagraphics Bookstore and Gallery in Georgetown in Seattle, sometimes called the 'Last Outpost of Blue-Collar, Bohemian Arts Culture' in the city. Before being annexed by Seattle in 1910, Georgetown was a wide open saloon town with its own horse racing track, leading a local preacher to dub it "the cesspool of Seattle." Built up by Boeing workers and the former Rainier Brewery, the neighborhood three miles south of the city faltered in the post-war era. <br />
