This was the first Eatonville stage owed by Chas (Charles) Fredricksen.

“In 1912 the auto stage replaced the horse drawn stage lines, although the Eatonville fire fighters continued to use a horse cart propelled by man-power for almost twenty more years.

Charles Fredricksen owned and operated the first motor bus line to Tacoma. The first bus was a white with canvas top and side curtains.” (History of Southeastern Pierce County)

Pictured here are: Lee Smith (man in white apron), Lucy Kreger (woman in the second seat), Bob Kreger (in front of Lucy), and Charles Fredricksen (driver).
