Fred Fredricksen stands proudly, and for good reason. Fred is the driver of the first stage (taxi/limousine) from Eatonville to Tacoma using the East road.
Fred is standing on the dirt road front of Kipper’s Ford Garage, which the Sears store is today.

As close as I can tell that appears to be a 1920 Hudson touring
Where was Kipper’s garage? If on Mashell, what side?
It is on the east side of Mashell to what was Chistensen’s Dept Store
This is a great picture of the limo and taxi industry at it’s starting stages. Thank you for sharing it with us Pat and Taylor family.
