Two Roslyn businesses located on the west side of Pennsylvania Avenue during the 1930s were Central Drug Company and Slim's (Slims) Place. In 1918 the Central Drug Store was owned by Mr. Tim who after entering World War I sold the business to E. E. Eilertsen. Dewey Lundahl purchased the drug store in 1927 which was moved in 1932 to the present location. Again the store was sold to John Mus in 1944 and Steve and Emily Banich in 1946. Frank "Slim" Runje arrived in Roslyn in 1920 and opened the Union Pool Hall with Hugh Mooney. Later Runje purchased the Matt Danielson Building and opened Slim's Place which became a very popular meeting place.Handwritten in white ink on front of postcard, "Roslyn, Wash."
