In 1909, the Japanese language daily newspaper Great North American Times (1909-1942) begins publishing in Seattle. The editor and publisher is K. Takeuchi. The newspaper is in circulation until 1942, when Seattle's Japanese American community is forced away to internment camps.

After moving to a couple of other locations, in the early 1920s, the Great Northern Daily News relocated to 414 S Main Street. The daily was published there until April 21, 1942.
