Belgian waffles then The Dog House

The Dog House restaurant postcard from Helen's 1963 visit to Seattle, including the fairgrounds of the 1962 Seattle World's Fair (now the Seattle Center).

9/22/63 Dear Bea & Jeanne, We went to the Bethany Pres. Church this A.M. and then to the fairgrounds. Of course it had to rain. Did take a few pictures. Had strawberry waffles at the Belgian booth at the Food Circus. Saw quite a bit but the rain got the best of us. Then we drove to "The Dog House" and had dinner. Then came on home. Are going to ride the monorail tomorrow. Hope everything is OK there. As ever, Helen.
