N. P. Christensen b0ught the  Mashell Telephone Exchange from Dye and Biggs in 1912. Despite the fact that Mashell Ave. is dirt, this picture looks like it could have been taken yesterday.

It wasn’t quite the booming business that it is today. In 1912 Eatonville only had 30 phones.

Today you know the business better as Rainier Connect.
