I remember when these stairs were the site of South 19th Street and there was a Les Schwab TIre Center to the left. When the University of Washington opened their Tacoma branch they convert the street to these stairs. The designer really did a great job.
I met a dear friend at the Hub for dinner and while waiting for her I stopped into Bleach at 1934 Pacific Avenue, Tacoma in the University of Washington Tacoma area. They really had some nice, original t-shirts and I’m hoping to go back and pick up a few. They have a bunch of other great clothes too. Their website is here. They also have a nice selection of skateboards.
