Caption Everybody's Store - 1933
Description Exterior view of the short-lived Everybody's Store located in the Keystone (Moyer ) Building at the NE corner of 7th and Commercial Avenue in the early 1930s, just as the Great Depression worsened. It was not listed in 1934 and subsequent city directories. Note "NRA" signs over the doors. The National Recovery Administration was part of Franklin Roosevelt's Depression-era programs. An NRA organization formed in Anacortes in 1933 to "handle the detail work and publicity of this great drive for prosperity." Ed Schwartz, then president of the Chamber of Commerce, was contacted by the Washington State NRA headquarters to organize the civic bodies of Anacortes and begin the drive for members and cooperation in the National Recovery campaign. For more information, see the 8-10-1933 ANACORTES AMERICAN.
