Here’s a glimpse inside the early Eatonville hardware store. The information on the photo says that the stairs in the back lead to an apartment above.
This is probably Mr. Ingersoll’s hardware store around 1914 (see Pat’s comments below). In the 1915 fire, it would not only burn to the ground, it would be the place the got its start.

Great picture !! ca 1914 There was only one hardware store in eatonille at time this picture was taken .they have electric ligths (1914) & a telephone (1910)on post near stairs they were also selling rugs note the price tag on rug. Best guess it was Ingersoll’s store soon to burn on May 15th 1915
Thanks. This really helps clarify things,
