|Start of the walk: Standing on the UW Tacoma Campus stairs|
|Ghost Sign on one of the UW Tacoma Campus many repurposed historic buildings. These are the original building signs that have been uncovered, but not removed or repainted, to preserve their antique character|
|The next campus building to be repurposed. The UW Tacoma campus is comprised of original, repurposed buildings & new structures designed to blend in with the historic area.|
|Our first stop was by the old railroad tracks that still run between the campus buildings|
|More ghost signs along our walk... This building has been many things over the years, including a coffee shop & an auto clearing house.|
|Old Tacoma Brewery District area...|
|Brick building at our last stop in the Brewery District|
|Walking back toward The Hub (one of Tacoma's micro breweries, restaurant & gathering place) where the tour ended in a beer tasting for those who wanted to attend.|
