Gum Wall in Seattle’s Post Alley

Gum Wall in Post AlleyA friend of mine just returned from Seattle and showed me some photos of an alley covered in gum. I had visited the same alley before and shot these photos. It’s called Post Alley and it’s located right next to the famous Pike Place Market. It’s quite a site to see, so if you visit Pike Place, make sure you check out Post Alley—there’s more to see than just gum.

Of course, Seattle is an amazing city, and is probably in my top five most walkable cities in the US. Please check out my photos of the Gum Wall and other photos of Seattle (Note: I have hundreds of photos in this photo set that are not yet public, but will release more in addition to these over time).

    Yep, that’s gross. I’m glad I haven’t seen anything like that around here…

    There’s a wall like that at NC State campus in Raleigh, and a ceiling like that at Carowinds in Charlotte. Gum walls are truly a beautiful thing.

    There’s a really extensive pair in San Luis Obispo on the California Central Coast – called Bubblegum Alley:
