Description

A unique view from North Pearl Street looking south toward the business district. The photograph was taken from the intersection of Pearl and Eighth Streets. Two large houses on the right belonged to the John Davidson family and the G. E. Dickson family. The two story brick building in center was the Antlers Hotel, formerly the Horton Hotel, which was built in 1889. At the end of Pearl Street on the left can be seen the two towers of the Davidson and Kreidel Buildings. The Fitterer family home was located on the southeast corner of Pearl and Eighth Streets. Wide graded streets and cement sidewalks lined with attractive street lights were an indication of Ellensburg's advancement.Postcard titled " No. 20, Pearl Street, Ellensburg, Washington."
