Items were found in an antique store within an 11 x 6 x 2" green wooden glassed-in box (mirror inset within cover, hinge broken), possibly in North Dakota, and sent to donor by purchaser. Several items in box, as well as the box itself, were returned to the donor.
Photos have not been separated from the document collection as the photos are unidentified; a few clearly having no relation to Anacortes and therefore would not be added to the photo collection.
* Two photos taken out of records collection (4/26/2010); entered into data base as PHOTO 2007.006.007-.008.
The folder of items pertain to the Todd family and businesses of Anacortes. The receipts although for daily lives, are a record of the businesses in Anacortes and their location, and in some cases, the proprietor.
The school records are records, not only of the students performance, but of the type of records given for the schooling. Mary Todd is in the AHS Rhododendron for the class of 1952.
