Answer to last week's puzzle after the jump.

Last week's photo shows the ornate clock tower at the entrance to MOHAI, the Museum of History and Industry next to the Montlake Cut south of the University of Washington. The museum has an eclectic but interesting collection tracing the various stages of Seattle-area commercial development. Especially interesting are the various figureheads from ship prows of yesteryear:

The current location is fairly convenient and has free parking, but the museum will be moving next year to make room for major construction on State Route 520:
In 2012 in the historic Naval Reserve Building in Lake Union Park, MOHAI will bring alive the people and events of local and national history. Open spaces, stunning views and welcoming gathering spots will invite civic dialogue, reflection and participation.
I was at MOHAI for the monthly meeting of TENS, The Executive Network of Seattle, of which I am now humbled and pleased to be a member. A great bunch of talented an interesting entrepreneurs, business owners and senior executives spanning various companies and local industries.
