East Glacier in 1924

This week's Throwback Thursday is from East Glacier. Here's a picture of Glacier Park Trading Company and Mike's Place, before it burned down twice.  The first in 1924, and again in 1931. Glacier Park Trading Company still operates as a general store for East Glacier

Additional viewer information from Historian Ray Djuff:

The earlier picture, marked circa 1924, was, according to my records, taken on July 4 1924, and shows the original building, the LaPlante Pool Hall, that Mike Shannon bought from John Lindhe. Mike renamed the pool hall Mike’s Place. The 1924 fire occurred later in the month, after the photo was taken, so it is one of the last views of the hall before the fire.
