Sailor's Rest - Seattle WA

Sailor’s Rest, what could this be?

:  :  :

Here,

in the SODO district (south of downtown) of Seattle

is a vintage neon sign which says ‘Sailor’s Rest,’ across an anchor.

It is displayed on the side of an old warehouse built in 1917,

currently owned by Sailors Rest LLC.

:  :  :

So,

I am wondering,

what was the original purpose of this neon sign.

Is it in it’s original location?

It is just a few blocks from Seattle’s working waterfront,

was it a refuge for sailor’s years ago?

:  :  :

There is a Catholic Seaman’s Club in Seattle that opened in 1939

to serve the needs of merchant marines

from around the world.

I remember

when I worked on the waterfront for 20 years,

having sailors ask me how to get there from the docks

where their ships were berthed while being unloaded and loaded again.

:  :  :

Perhaps,

there once were two places of refuge

for the men

who down to the sea in ships.

:  :  :

I’ve been doing a lot of apologizing lately.

Work is really exhausting me.

I am sorry

that Weekly Top Shot is SO late going up again today.

I slept for 14 hours.
