This is Deb Ross' latest video that I helped with. Deb gives some background about 4th Avenue and Capitol Way in her "iconic intersections" series. She talks about some early Olympia history. Who knew that Alice B. Toklas had visited Olympia? Too bad she didn't live until pot was legal here. https://youtu.be/W630VtJQIv0 You can subscribe on the YouTube Channel page for updates and new videos. The show is in its second year.
