This spectacular image of Mount Rainier and Paradise Inn was taken around 1910, back when you could take a 12-day cruise from New York to Nova Scotia (including meals) for $60 and “Let Me Call You Sweetheart” was a hit song. It also around then the first self-propelled gas combine harvester was produced by the Holt Co., to replace horse- and tractor-pulled combines.
Things may have changed quite a bit since 1910, but Mount Rainier still remains just a majestic and beautiful, and you can still visit the Paradise Inn.
