Description

Looking south on Pearl Street approaching the intersection of Pearl Street and Fourth Avenue during January or February of 1916, few people, wagons or sleighs were seen. On the left can be seen part of the old Ben Snipes Bank later the Washington National Bank and the towered Kreidel Building both constructed in the fall of 1889. On the right were the Cadwell-Olympic Building, the Geddis Building, Boss Bakery, the Kleinberg Building and the St. Regis Hotel. Kittitas County received a record snowfall during the winter of 1916. Northern Kittitas County communities of Roslyn and Cle Elum reported over 28 feet of snow. Both the Northern Pacific and the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railroads were at a standstill. Ellensburg area children were able to use their sleds from November until the end of March.
