Locals know Barney’s Corner as a gas station, but early on it was much, much more.
I believe this matchbook cover comes from around the 1940s. Back then there was food and dance.
Barney was Keith Malcom’s brother …

Eatvonille School bus (1920s)

Before there were big yellow school buses, Eatonville transported kids in busses like these. They look a little like trolley car glued to the front end of a truck, but the kids seem to like it.

The only thing missing is a school bus driver. Maybe he’s taking the picture.

    That appears to be a 1927 ‘White’ school bus. White trucks were used alot in the 20’s for many applications from school buses, to dump trucks, to logging trucks, and 100’s of other commercial uses.

    Seeing an old bus like that reminds me of Wilton Colyer, my architecural drafting teacher I had in 10th grade at Eatonville H.S.

    He told us he was in a school bus accident as a child, that had mangled one of his hands and arm. He said his arm got crushed between the window and window post when the bus crashed.

    I was amazed at how well he was stii able to use his damaged arm and hand. His class is what helped me choose a direction in life.
    I really enjoyed arch. drafting, and most of my career has be diectly or indirectly related to that field.

    Wilton Colyer also taught drivers education. We had to learn how to drive on Ice and snow before we passed !!
