Regarding Triangle Hotel and Bar. Excerpt from the National Register of Historic Places submission (1976):

Owing in large part to its accessibility from the docks and railroads, it had eventually become a brothel. The ground story was maintained as a neighborhood tavern known as the Triangle Bar until 1929, at which time the Western Union Telegraph Company located its "C" Branch office in the space. The first branch location to serve the main office of Western Union in Seattle, "C" Branch is believed to have been one of the early urban branch offices established by the telegraph company.

The landlord has indicated plans to turn the building into a boutique hotel.
and Cherry Street was conducted via pneumatic tubing. Upon Western Union's departure from the premises in 1954, the ground story was re-outfitted for tavern use, a function which has only recently been phased out.
