I'M A MEME! I'M A MEME!
May 25th, 2007 by Clark Humphrey

My book title Vanishing Seattle (actually thought up by my Arcadia Publishing editor, Julie Albright) is fast becoming a catch phrase for the accelerating corporatization of our once-modest burg. Witness this entry in the P-I’s real estate blog, mentioning the now-shuttered Central Pawn Shop on First Avenue in relation to the 1974 John Wayne action film McQ. I’d written some detailed notes a couple years back about the locations used in that film, as part of an aborted book project for Clear Cut Press. I agree with the blog post’s author, Marlow Harris (see a couple items below this one on this page), that McQ remains, if not a great movie, a great time capsule of the city as it once was.
