Description The "Bachelor's Union" was an event held in late January, 1912, in the Taylor Hotel dining room. The sign on the wall at left states, "Bachelor's Union - We Believe in Union." This is an excellent view of the dining room as well as dress styles of the day. Note the three black musicians playing music at far left; this is one of the earliest photos of blacks in Anacortes, although these men were brought up from Seattle for the event. Also, decor with ferns is affixed to the walls. There was a Bachelor's Club in Anacortes c. late 1890s. See 9-30-1954, ANACORTES AMERICAN Homecoming and History issue, p. 14. For additional information on the event, see a transcription about the event in the file. Names of those attending are listed under "People" on this form.
