Remembering the viaduct’s first hater

Maybe you remember him for his pranks. Or perhaps his generosity. Or maybe you just really like his clam chowder.

Whatever the reason, Ivar Haglund has become an almost mythical figure in Emerald City. That’s why we decided to launch our video series about the Seattle Waterfront this week with a look back at the man himself.

Fun fact: Back in 1953, Ivar had a hot take on the newly-built Alaskan Way Viaduct.
