Caption 6th Street - Commercial to Q
Description This view is of the north side of 6th Street between Commercial and Q avenues. Left to right: ANACORTES CITIZEN (newspaper), Elks Building. The ANACORTES CITIZEN began c. 1907. The newspaper was listed in the 1912 city directory as being on "6th Street between Commercial and Q." The address was 913 6th. Joseph O. McNary was the proprietor and editor. On 3-26-1927, the CITIZEN merged with the ANACORTES MERCURY as the DAILY MERCURY-CITIZEN. The Elks Building was built in 1915. In 1920, due to increased membership the Elks purchased the three lots that were occupied by the ANACORTES CITIZEN building. On 3-25-1922, work began on an addition to the Elks Building, adding a third floor and an addition on the west side; the building reopened 8-2-1922, just in time for Anacortes' lodge and its 1260 members to host the Washington State Elks Convention. See WF 0585. This image may have been taken by Charles Judd and copied by Brady.
