Description

Looking south up Roslyn's Pennsylvania Avenue, a young boy in his wool knickers stood in the middle of the street. Most of the false-front, wooden buildings in Roslyn's central business district housed stores, saloons, restaurants and other necessary supplies for the early coal miners. Hand printed on original postcard "Pensylvania (sic) Ave Roslyn, Wash." The y in Roslyn and the s in Wash. were written backwards.
