Seattle’s gum wall gets put in its place, somewhat

Seattle’s offbeat gum wall attraction has been steadily extending its territory with colourful wads of public donations over the years, to the point of spreading as far as 40 feet beyond its designated canvas near the Market Theater box office. So, in July this year, it got put in its place with a bit of pressure cleaning. It’s still not tricking us into a sticky bear hug with the wall though. These pictures show the wall in its full gross glory before the washup.
