Pearl Avenue Rebuilt 1917 

ATLIN'S HISTORIC PEARL AVENUE - was re-built in 1917 after fire swept through the town core. Photo at right above is circa 1920. The light-coloured house on the right side of the street, has a sign out front which says "Taylors Photo Shop". The darker larger building uphill from it, has a sign which says "Post Office". Across the street, the awnings of The Garrett Store can be seen. Note the wide boardwalks each side of the street. They are raised well above the mud of the street. Today's mountain bikers and skateboarders would love these boardwalks.
