You’re getting a glimpse of Malcolm’s Meat Shop in August 1948 (or at least that’s what the date appears to be on the calendar behind the butcher).
Olaf Malcolm was a second-generation butcher from Norway and arrived in 1918.
He homesteaded just outside Eatonville (where Rich Collins lives today) and built a slaughterhouse. The young entrepreneur opened up meat markets in Eatonville (currently the vacant building across from Tall Timber), Kapowsin, Mineral and Morton.
