Thank go for postcards in the early 1900s. They give you such a unique glimpse of the world. This one, from 1908 is of Tacoma Eastern Railroad’s Railroad Avenue, probably near Elbe.
Note on the card reads, “How is this for tall timber — the woods are full of them out here.”
Now if only they had signed more of their postcards.
