The Grand hotel, Sumas, WA - 1917

Photographed scanned with permission from a private collection.

The Grand Hotel circa 1917 on the south east corner of Cherry Street and Garfield Street.
 This building used to face Cherry Street and also housed the Caribou Tavern in its later years.  The building was torn down in the 1970s and Klander's Department Store was built in its place.  Since Klander's closed it has been home to various restaurants.  Pinochio's Pizza, El Nopal and now Basil's Thai Food  had served lots of people over the years.

This is the same location that the Grand Hotel use to stand.  The hotel would have come up to the sidewalk and covered parking lot as well as the restaurant. 

Also notice the difference in the snowstorm from 1917 compared to the snow in 2014.  I don't think we have any reason to complain about the snow!
