The famous gum wall at Pike Place market’s Post Alley in Seattle, Washington, has officially been steamed off!
People have been sticking their used chewing gum to the wall for twenty years. Some of the gum pieces have been molded into messages, hearts and other shapes.
The tradition spread beyond the wall and on to nearby pipes, and even the theatre’s box office window.
A spokeswoman for the market, Emily Crawford, said she expected people would resume the practice the moment the wall was once again blank.
