About the Gum Wall:
The Gum Wall started in the 1990s and eventually turned into a place that represents Seattle’s ‘unique charm and character,’ explains the official website dedicated to the place. Initially, local performers stuck used gums on the wall, but soon, others started joining in too. Presently, the wall is covered from brick to brick in chewed gums.
