Description

Before Interstate Highway 90 was constructed and opened in the late 1960s, Cle Elum's First Street was also Highway 10. The street within the city limits offered many hotels and restaurants to travelers and visitors. Looking west on First Street from the intersection of Harris Avenue, the viewer can see the Cle Elum State Bank on the right. The bank was opened in 1904 and the brick building was constructed in 1906. Managed by Charles E. Hugg, the Autorest Café on the north side of the street offered restaurant services, ice cream, confectionery, tobacco and fountain drinks. Postcard titled, "Street Scene - Cle Elum, Wash."
