Thank you Steve Burwash for sharing this great find—a 1923 calendar from Christensen’s Department Store. (This is the same year Transcontinental airmail service begins and Elmer Rice’s “Adding Machine” premieres in NYC.)

Here’s a shot too of what the store looked like back then.

The falls in the calendar are Wild Cat Falls. It’s still a popular fishing hole. Here’s what they have to says on HookandBullet.com.

“Wildcat Falls is a falls located just 1.5 miles from Eatonville, in Pierce County, in the state of Washington, United States, near Eatonville Junction, WA. Whether you’re baitcasting, fly fishing or spinning your chances of getting a bite here are good. So grab your favorite fly fishing rod and reel, and head out to Wildcat Falls.”
