This time of year, with all the rain, it’s rare to get a glimpse of Mount Rainier. So here’s a glimpse a 100 years back. This postcard was sent to Anna Peterson from Ashford in June or July of 1908.
Telephones didn’t come to Eatonville until 1910 — and it took until 1912 before there were 30 of them out there. Until then, this is how you “dropped a line”.
I’m personally fond of this post card because Anna would have been my next door neighbor. Check out the address back then — Eatonville, Wash.

How many others out there collect Mt. Rainier postcards or Rainier memoriabilia/ephemora?
