Brad Holden Seattle Collection

Brad Holden is a local Seattle historian who enjoys uncovering his city’s past by finding old items of interest at estate sales, flea markets and antique bookstores and chronicling his finds on social media.  He's been doing this form of so-called “urban archaeology” for several years and has historical artifacts going all the way back to Seattle’s founding in 1851.  A particular passion is old menus and Brad  currently has the largest private collection of vintage Seattle menus, including many rare, one-of-a-kind ones from over a hundred years ago.
