drazan 1 year, 3 months ago on Generations meld over ice cream

Correction for the record: There never has been a business of any sort by the name "O'Dell" in Walla Walla. There was a Roedel's Ice Cream shop in the 1940s and 1950s just a few blocks from the White Temple Baptist Church. Roedel's probably rhymes with O'Dell's which has caused the confusion.

See my website link below for several pictures and ads of Roedel's, and hundreds of other Walla Walla businesses, buildings, events, people, etc.

Yes, please reinstate the "search by name" function on this most important local database. It is an extremely useful tool for historians and genealogists.

This photo was taken from an upstairs window in the back of the Book Nook building. It is looking at the bridge on Colville St. On the other side of the bridge is the Edgewater outdoor dance pavilion. Behind that is the tall building that was the YMCA which is still standing.

Correction: The Church of God was located at the corner of Park and Alder Streets across from old Fire Station #2, and not on Palouse street as captioned in photo number 3. The building was demolished and removed. The pastor's name was T W Good.

The first article in this Etcetera column refers to "Bob's blog". That is an error - it is JOE's blog and has been since 2009. It has over 550 posts that include over 3000 historical Walla Walla images. See it at: http://www.wallawalladrazanphotos.blogspot.com/
