I don’t know much about this photo, except what was written on the back.

Since the horses appear to have hats on and there are flags on the front ot he wagon, I’m guessing these folks are ready for a Eatonville 4th of July parade. (And obviously being politically correct wasn’t an issue back then.)

Leslee Dunlap is the great granddaughter of the driver, William Breuer. She says he was married to Elizabeth and they had Alfred Breuer and Martha (Breuer) Parrish. Williams was an industrious guy.

There he had a few cabins for fishermen to stay in.

Anyone who can shed additional light on this incredible  photo, please step up.
