The Skagit County Poor Farm and Tuberculosis Hospital on Calhoun Road, built in 1910, served the people of Fidalgo Island as well as the general region. This is from a montage of health care images that Wallie Funk made in collaboration with a series of newspaper articles that he wrote on the history of health care in Anacortes (ANACORTES AMERICAN, 1996, issues 5-1, 5-8, 5-15, 5-22). He borrowed this image and returned it.
Photo has 4 women posing for photo with a two-wheeled buggy like item to possibly be used in harvesting in the fields. Two of the women are standing behind the "buggy", one is sitting in the seat and the fourth is getting into the seat.
