Caption 1940 Marineer Parade - boat model float
Description This image of the Marineers' Pageant Parade of 1940 shows a car pulling a long boat model atop a flatbed trailer passing in front of Mel's Signal Service at 18th and Commercial. The sign on the side of the trailer says, "Progress in Skagit County." This same float may be seen in WF 1461. Other commercial and residential structures are in the background. Mel's was found listed only in the 1939 city directory, not in the 1937 or 1940 directories.
