Description

Photo taken near the intersection of Harris Avenue and First Street in Cle Elum, WA.

Both sides of busy First Street were lined with vintage 1920s automobiles in this Cle Elum photograph. The Cle Elum State Bank building is on the left at the corner of First and Harris, and the MacMarr Stores and C. J. Breiers Company are on the left. Since Highway 10 ran through the middle of Cle Elum, many hotel and restaurant accommodations were provided for travelers.
