Catalog Number WF 2480
Caption Salvation Army - Easter tableau
Description WF 2479 and 2480 show a woman and children posing in an Easter Tableau. WF 2480 shows them dressed in peasant-type outfits, holding crosses. Perhaps they were imitating children of Lourdes (Our Lady of Fatima) or some other religious event/apparition. The Salvation Army came to Anacortes in 1905 under Adjutant George Dowell and was housed on 4th Street between Commercial and O avenues. The 4-24-1906 ANACORTES AMERICAN reported, "Anacortes is to have a real Salvation Army band with a big bass drum and tambourine. A town never prospers until one can hear the good soldiers marching on to war and we welcome the comrades as a forerunner of prosperity by the wholesale." The 1911 directory listed it at the corner of 3rd and Commercial. The 1917 directory listed headquarters at 913 4th Street. The 1921 directory listed addresses at both 913 4th and 1102 4th. From 1937 until 1962, Salvation Army Hall was listed at 1102 4th. The 4-29-1971 ANACORTES AMERICAN reported the Salvation Army's move to a new location at 814 28th Street. During December 1998 it moved again, this time to 3001 R Avenue where it still is as of June 2009.
