|Caption||Snack Boat restaurant 1929|
This purse seiner was converted to a snack boat which was beached on the south end of the Similk Beach golf course. The April 4, 1929 ANACORTES AMERICAN reported: "Development at Similk Beach is progressing. ... Work is rapidly progressing on new golf course and before summer everything will be ready. Mr. Turner, manager of the summer home development company, said many lots have been sold. ... A large tugboat has been purchased and towed onto the beach where it will serve as a restaurant and club house for those at the beach. It will be remodeled and painted and should prove quite a novelty for its patrons." This is a Brady postcard view, labeled: "#93, The boat, Similk Beach, Anacortes, Wash, BRADY".
