Caption May's Chicken Dinner
Description May's Chicken Dinner restaurant was located on "Marine Drive overlooking March's Point" according to Wallie Funk's notes. The view shows the interior of the restaurant and some patrons. No mention of this restaurant is found in the 1940, 1948, or 1952 directories. This may have been the restaurant featured in an article in the 10-9-1950 ANACORTES AMERICAN. "Tea room opened at March's Point by Mrs. H. L. Shafer. Opened at Illahe, March's Point, serving chicken dinners to all comers. Located at Thomas Tate place just east of main highway." The 12-7-1950 paper reported, "Robert Verrall buys restaurant on Marine Drive." the article stated that the restaurant, located four miles south of Anacortes, was formerly known as "May's Chicken Dinner" restaurant now to be known as "Bob's Chicken Dinner." The article stated that the restaurant had two rooms, a large room that seated 60 and a smaller room that seated 20. This photo was probably a view of that larger room. This is one of a series of three photos; see also WF 1116, 1117. Wallie Funk thought the restaurant was run by May Pickett Voolich; see WF 4835.
