Caption Marineer Parade c. 1938 - Military color guard
Description This image from the c. 1938 Marineer Parade is of a color guard and marching unit from the U. S. Marine Corps. Notice the sign above the street reading, "Welcome Fleet" which was aimed at visiting naval vessels; also note the "acorn" street lights. The men marching in the rear may have been from one of the military ships visiting Anacortes. For a close-up view, see WF 1487.
