A truly snowy Sumas looking north up Cherry Street towards the Canadian border. This is taken from in the middle of the block between First Street and Garfield Street. You can see on the west (left) side of the street a café with a well lit Darigold Ice Cream sign. On down the street is Post's Cash Grocery located where Bromely's parking lot currently is. On the east (right ) side of the street is the Grand Hotel which has the International Drug Store and the Caribou Tavern on the ground floor.
This view is looking south down Cherry Street taken from the Northeast corner of the Cherry and First Street. You can see the Lapp Store behind the post on the west (right) side of the street. Further on down you can see the Sumas Bank which is now the WOW Hair Salon also on the west side of the Street. This picture is taken from the front of Linn's Hardware and Groceries under the protection of the overhang that is attached to the front of the store.
This picture was probably taken in 1952. The photograph was taken from the middle of the intersection of First and Cherry Street. Linn's Store was located on the Northeast corner of First and Cherry St. This location is now a parking lot of a small strip mall. You can see the Grand Hotel next to Linn's Store.
Again, thanks to Mr. John Linn for his generous sharing of some awesome photographs.
