Description WF 1154-1164 is a series of eleven pictures that Brady took of the Anacortes Housing Authority project. The 8-22-1943, ANACORTES AMERICAN reported that Unit One, Bay View Homes, with 22 units of low-income dwellings for the Anacortes Housing Authority was complete. The 8-1-1944 issue reported on the completion of Unit Two. This view is of the interior of the housing office and the staff. Wilma Townsend is seated and left, and Betty Fritz is on the right. The housing project was demolished in 1959 to make way for the new location of Island Hospital. See Wallie Funk photos of the demolition of the housing project.
