1109_southwenatchee

This aerial is of the South Wenatchee area in 1954.

The Bruce Mitchell orchard is in the foreground, adjacent to the VueDale Drive-In which had been recently built.

South Wenatchee School is near the center of the picture.

To the left of the school, and across Malaga Road, are the buildings and stockyards of the Wenatchee Packing Co. The large building near the river is the Columbia Ice and Cold Storage factory.

The Great Northern Railroad yards, roundhouse, and electric shop are between the yards and the main line track. Appleyard became a division point on the Great Northern when the yards and shops were built in 1922.

The small island in the upper left corner is a short distance upstream from the point at which trains were ferried across the river between October 1892 and May 1893, while the Rock Island railroad bridge was under construction.
