Seattle achieved sufficient economic success that when the Great Seattle Fire of 1889 destroyed the central business district, a far grander city-center rapidly emerged in its place.
The second and most dramatic boom resulted from the Klondike Gold Rush, which ended the depression that had begun with the Panic of 1893. Portland docked with its famed "ton of gold", and Seattle became the main transport and supply point for the miners in Alaska and the Yukon. However, it was Seattle's business of clothing the miners and feeding them salmon that panned out in the long run.
Violence during the Maritime Strike of 1934 cost Seattle much of its maritime traffic, which was rerouted to the Port of Los Angeles.
Seattle has risen several times economically, then gone into precipitous decline, but it has typically used those periods to rebuild solid infrastructure.
The first such boom, covering the early years of the city, rode on the lumber industry.
Other Seattle companies founded during this period include Nordstrom and Eddie Bauer.
A shipbuilding boom in the early part of the 20th century became massive during World War I, making Seattle somewhat of a company town.
The stream of new software, biotechnology, and Internet companies led to an economic revival, which increased the city's population by almost 50,000 between 19. From 1918 to 1951, nearly two dozen jazz nightclubs existed along Jackson Street, from the current Chinatown/International District to the Central District.
