The July 10, 1939 ANACORTES AMERICAN reported that Brady, a "former city council member", had been re-elected to the board from the 2nd Ward. Note the Great Northern Railroad calendar on the wall at right which dates the image. The location is probably the interior of Anacortes City Hall Building at 1107 5th Street. On September 25, 1947, City Hall moved into the Elks Building, vacated in 1937 by the Elks and known since that time as the "Community Building."
