July 4 1910 and 2011

Nothing stops Eatonville when it comes to 4th of July parades. Even though these two pictures were taken over 100 years apart, it appears we still like the same kinds of cars we did back then.

This first picture is on Mashell. The Redman Hall (building on the far left) sits where Jebino’s parking lot is today, and the house beside is the restaurant sits.

The second picture, was taken on Orchard. The parade had to be moved this year because the Mashall Ave. was being paved.
