On 10-15-1891, the ANACORTES AMERICAN reported that, "Site ordered prepared for new city hall." By 4-7-1892, the building was completed and the paper announced, "New fire hall quarters in city hall."

Anacortes Fire Department on Ocean Dock at the foot of P (Commercial) on July 4, 1892. The Oregon Improvement Company warehouse is at right. Note sidewheeler vessel in rear. Firemen are holding a rope that is attached to a hose cart. They had reason to be happy that July; they had just moved into a brand new fire hall of 5th Street between N and O avenues, and they had a brand new fire engine. Their source for water in fighting fires was to haul the engine down to the Ocean Dock and throw its hose into Guemes Channel. The 4-7-1892, ANACORTES AMERICAN reported in an article titled "The New Fire Engine", "The new steam fire engine arrived on Sunday in charge of two of the engineers of the Seatt

WF 0359.A,B - Fire Engine

Pictured is the Anacortes Fire Department's new motorized ladder truck in the doorway of Anacortes Fire Hall; the hall was built in 1891 located at 1107 5th Street, on south side of 5th Street between O Avenue (southwest corner) and N Avenue which also housed the jail and Anacortes City Hall. The side of the engine says "Hose 1". The man sitting to the right of the driver, with a white mustache, appears to be William G. Beard, who had served as Anacortes mayor in 1903. He was elected to City Council in 1908 and died in 1915. The man standing to the left of Beard may have been the current mayor.

WF 1016 - Texaco Service Station

On 9-18-1930, the ANACORTES AMERICAN reported, "Texaco to build gas station here at 9th and Commercial." Grounds was broken on 10-3-1930 on the NE corner of that intersection. Norm Pinkerton ran it in its early years and his name is visible over the gasoline pumps. In 1948, the city directory listed this gas station as [Paul] Fosse's Texaco Service, 819 Commercial; Fosse was an Anacortes councilman. This business continued until c. 1962 when it was called A & Bill's Texaco. The 1975 and 1986 directories listed Al's Texaco , run by Al Littlefield, at that address. Note the fire engine in this view along with firemen. The station was demolished in 1990 when the corner was cleared for ere
