SEATTLE'S WEDGWOOD NEIGHBORHOOD, WHAT'S IN A NAME?
For a long time I've wondered why a lovely suburb of Seattle was named Wedgwood. Recently I ran across an entry on the Internet which seemed to tell that story. I've now found a great blog about the community and there is an article which explains the origins of the area and its name. Please go here to read the story. It's a bit long, but read down to the bottom and you'll find the explanation, and yes, it has to do with dishes made by You Know Who! Enjoy this Wedgwood geography lesson, a great piece of trivia for your next trivia night or cocktail party banter.
