Taken at the intersection of Fourth Avenue and Pearl Street this view is looking north on Pearl Street. The large Davidson Building on the right housed the ever popular and elegant Albany Hotel on the second floor. The Horton Hotel on the left was one of the most reputable hotels in central Washington. Many electric poles and swinging street lights indicated the residents and businesses in the towndown area were provided with utilities. The large, stately Schnebly house can be seen at the north end of Pearl Street on Eighth Avenue.Postcard titled: "Pearl Street, Ellensburg. ---Photo by Pautzke."
