This February, 1913 photograph shows the construction of a large ice house by the newly incorporated Wenatchee Natural Ice Co. Located near the northwest corner of Spokane Street and Wenatchee Avenue, the completed building was 60 by 80 feet and 30 feet high with six rooms. About 25 carloads of sawdust were used in storing the frozen chunks that came from Three Lakes. One hundred men and 20 teams were employed in cutting and hauling the ice to the storage plant.

This is a recent photograph of the corner of South Wenatchee Avenue and Spokane Streets taken from a window of the Go USA building on Thursday, Jan. 19, 2022.
