The Mid 1920’s – The road along the Columbia River from Chelan -Entiat – Wenatchee. Earlier we indicated this might be from Orondo to Wenatchee. But we don’t think so now. We think this photo shows the vehicle traveling south along the Columbia towards Wenatchee, with the railroad tracks to the right and then the river. The picture speaks to travel and transportation conditions in the 1920’s; they were poor. A trip betwen Chelan and Wenatchee, no matter which side of the Columbia you traveled, was still or 4 or 5 hour adventure one way. This is the reason there once were many roadside motels and auto courts to accommodate travelers.
