Seattle waterfront -- Jun 12, 2019

In June 1965, a fisherman near Namu, British Columbia, found a 22-foot male orca entangled in his floating salmon net. An enterprising soul, he sold the orca to the owner of the privately owned Seattle Marine Aquarium. "Namu" was only the third orca ever captured, and unfortunately lived for only a year. This pin marks his brief life as a popular attraction on Pier 56. The Marine Aquarium survived until the opening of the city-owned Seattle Aquarium in 1977.Shown here: Pin-back button #042 from the collection of Mr. Joe James, grandson of Ye Olde Curiosity Shop founder Joseph Edward Standley. Mr. James was a lively participant in civic affairs and gathered these pins in the course of his 50 years managing the shop. We hope you enjoy these bits of history. ... See MoreSee Less
