Caption AZALEA - Robinson Fisheries
Description There were apparently two vessels named AZALEA that frequented Anacortes; both were associated with Robinson Fisheries. One was part of the Robinson fleet in the early 1900s and c. 1921 was converted into a floating cannery for Robinson's fishing operation at Neah Bay. It was a wooden scow with one deck, no mast, 28.6 leet in length, 9.8 feet in breadth, 2.7 feet in depth, and 6.13 gross/net tons burden, according to the 10-4-1923 ANACORTES AMERICAN. Robinson Fisheries also operated a three-masted schooner named AZALEA during the 1920s. The 9-14-1929 paper reported, "Robinson's schooner AZALEA back from the north. 155,000 codfish in hold of big three-master." This image is probably that later vessel. See also WF 1867.
