“The Junction ” as it became to be called, was originally the crossing of two streetcar lines. When West Seattle was annexed in 1907, besides improved water service from the City of Seattle, an additional streetcar line was extended down to Fauntleroy. Where the line ended at Fauntleroy was called “Endolyne E(end-of-the-line). Where the Fauntleroy line #2 met the tracks of the streetcar heading north to the Admiral neighborhood – the junction of the two rapidly grew to a small business district. “The Junction Ename stuck. Today it is the business heart of West Seattle, and a gathering place for community events and the summer farmer’s market.
