Konkan known as the Konkan Coast, is a rugged section of the western coastline of India. In Marathi it is called as kōkan, in Konkani as kōñkan, the Kannada word karāvalli meaning'coast', is applied to the Kanara subregion. Geographically, the stretch of land from the Daman Ganga River in the north to the Gangavalli River in the south is considered to form the Konkan; the ancient Sapta Konkan was a larger geographical area. The Konkan covers the seaside towns from Palghar district in the north to Karwar in the south; the whole of coastal Karnataka is sometimes included within the Konkan. However, this segment overlaps the Malabar coast continuum. According to the Sahyadrikhanda of the Skanda Purana, Parashurama shot his arrow into the sea and commanded the Sea God to recede up to the point where his arrow landed; the new piece of land thus recovered came to be known as Sapta-Konkana, meaning "piece of earth", "corner of earth", or "piece of corner", derived from Sanskrit words: koṇa + kaṇa. Xuanzang, the noted Chinese Buddhist monk, mentioned this region in his book as Konkana Desha.
Konkan extends throughout the western coasts of Maharashtra and Karnataka. It is bounded by the Western Ghats mountain range in the east, the Arabian Sea in the west, the Daman Ganga River in the north and the Gangavalli River in the south; the Gangavalli flows in the district of Uttara Kannada in present-day Karnataka. Its northern bank constitutes the southernmost portion of Konkan; the towns of Karwar, Kumta and Bhatkal fall within the Konkan coast. The largest city on the Konkan coast is the state capital of Maharashtra, it lies within the Konkan division, an administrative sub-division of Maharashtra which comprises all the coastal districts of the state. These are, from north to south: Palghar district Thane district Mumbai Suburban district Mumbai City district Raigad district Ratnagiri district Sindhudurg district Goa Uttara Kannada Udupi Dakshina Kannada The main ethnolinguistic group of the Konkan region is the Konkani people.

Broadway High School known as Seattle High School, opened in Seattle, Washington in 1902. It was the first high school built in Seattle. After World War II, the school was converted to a vocational training center for returning soldiers, the high school students were transferred to Lincoln High School and Edison Technical School which shared a campus with Broadway High; the campus became part of Seattle Community College in 1966, now Seattle Central College. Much of the former school's main building was demolished in the 1970s. A portion was rebuilt as Seattle Central College's Broadway Performance Hall. A video history of the school has been released. Broadway High School opened as Seattle High School in 1902 at East Pine Street, it was a traditional public high school. The architects were William E. J. M. Corner of the firm Boone and Corner, it was one of Boone's last commissions. The school was converted to a vocational and adult education institution for the benefit of World War II veterans who wanted to finish high school and existing students transferred.
Broadway High School was located at the corner of Broadway & Pine in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood and was Seattle's first high school. The last graduating class was in 1946, after which the building re-opened as Edison Technical College which served the troops returning home from WWII. In 1974, the majority of the original building, in need of significant repairs, was torn down. Through the efforts of the BHS Alumni Association, one part of the building was preserved and is the current site of the Broadway Performance Hall. Though the school was closed, the Alumni Foundation & Association remained active, holding annual reunions and providing significant scholarships to SCC students. During the rebuild, alumni rescued a few bags of artifacts found in storage and launched the Broadway High School Archives. Over the years, they amassed a significant collection of artifacts and ephemera including trophies, dance cards, letter sweaters and more. In 2014, the Alumni Association disbanded due to aging membership.
The Broadway High School Archives has been preserved by graduate students from University of Washington iSchool and Seattle Central College library as a resource for students, alumni families and genealogists
