First Eatonville Stage (ca. 1912)

Charles Fredricksen owned and operated the first motor bus line to Tacoma. The first bus was a white with canvas top and side curtains.” (History of Southeastern Pierce County)

Pictured here are: Lee Smith (man in white apron), Lucy Kreger (woman in the second seat), Bob Kreger (in front of Lucy), and Charles Fredricksen (driver).
