Honoring the work and life of local photographer John Stamets, this walking tour features 20 panoramic Widelux photos from his 1987 book Portrait of a Market, displayed throughout the  Market Arcade at the original locations that they were taken. The large-format photos capture the vitality and abundance of Pike Place in the mid-1980s. The photographs provide a unique insight into an important chapter in the history of Pike Place Market and reflect how the Market has changed while remaining true to its rich tradition of diverse residents, merchants, farmers and shoppers.

The twilight tour will provide an opportunity for people to document their own history of the Market. At each location where the photos are displayed, visitors can shoot photos showing the Market's past and its continued vitality in the present.
