These pictures of vault lights at the new (in 1917) Westlake Square "comfort station" in Seattle, Washington were located by researcher Brandon Hartle and copied by Anne Frantilla of the Seattle Municipal Archives. The interior shots show how well the daylighting worked. All pictures taken September 18, 1917.

The following were taken by Mike Guthrie in 2007 while on the Underground Tour. The first shot is looking up at a panel still in use, then six shots of three different panels on display, and finally a picture of a picture of new panels waiting to be installed after the Great Seattle Fire of 1889.
