This is a wonderful photograph of the Highway Garage in Sumas, WA. According to the contributor of this photograph, the business was owned and operated by Franklin Pierce Kohler and his father-in-law, James Ashbury Bussert. Mr. Donald Kohler was wondering if this business was somehow connected to the Highway Garage that was in Ferndale, WA.
It looks as if there was a church behind the garage. Could that be the old Methodist Church?
The inside of the Highway Garage in Sumas, WA. The two men at the left are identified a owner, Franklin Pierce Kohler and his father-in-law, James Ashbury Bussert It appears that James Ashbury Bussert died July 19, 1916, so this dates the interior picture before then.
Thank you Mr. Don Kohler for sharing this phenomenal bit of family history. This is much appreciated.
