Over on the Wallingford / Fremont Facebook page, Denys Howard posted this old photo of a poster from a cabaret that used to sit along the Wallingford / Fremont border:
This photo is the northwest corner of N 36th St and Woodland Park Ave N, in East Fremont. At times in the past, what are currently two businesses on the ground floor were a single space.
In the early 1980s, it housed a cabaret called the Kit Kat Club, with its lobby on the corner and the performance space on the right.
My housemates and I would go down there every week or two to enjoy the always-changing show. Great times.
The poster is the spring schedule from 1982.
A couple of other folks followed up with photos from Paul Dorpat’s great Now and Then blog of the same location, but dating back to 1912:
There are so many spots around the neighborhood with odd, out of place architectural features (like the “store front” at 42nd and 2nd Ave NE, it’s nice to see the photos make it all make sense.
