Does this building look familiar?

This photo of the Garland Apartment Building on Orondo Avenue was published in The Daily World on Oct. 26, 1922.

It was said to be one of the most creditable improvements made in Wenatchee during that year.

The three-story apartment and business building had just been completed by A.M. Garland.

The upper floors were occupied by eight two- and three-room "modern" apartments, equipped with disappearing beds, electric ranges, coolers and other built-in features.

The ground floor and basement were devoted to a billiard hall and club rooms, operated by Garland.

The billiard hall in the basement had eight pool tables, all of the newest design. A barber shop was also in the basement.

The ground floor featured a cigar and soft drink business as well as card tables and a restaurant operated by James Bracelin, formerly of Chelan.

Today the building is the home of McGlinn's Public House.
