Before the introduction of rail transport to Newcastle, the coal had to be handled 11 times between the mine and Seattle ports as it traveled down Coal Creek to Lake Washington, across the non-existent Mountlake pre-cut, over Lake Union, then across the South Lake Union area to the ports on Elliot Bay. I, too am amazed at the value of coal vs. the effort expended. But, for any society to survive it needs food and heat and will go to extraordinary measures to gather either.

Thank you Bill
