|Caption||Revival - probably in Burlington|
This view is of some type of revival, location unknown but probably in Burlington. Note the "NOTICE" sign at left of center; it mentions "Roberts Court," which was the area to the left of the flagpole base. Also note the sign that says "Zaniser Court" in front of the auto at the front. Note the office in rear and bulletin board. Also see WF 1321.
The 1920s and 1930s brought a continuous stream of evangelical crusaders through Anacortes and each summer they hosted numerous revivals. For example, the 7-26-1929, ANACORTES AMERICAN reported, "Old time gospel tent at 25th and Commercial. Evangelist F. C. Warren of Los Angeles brings a unique and original illustrated message." The 7-16-1926 paper reported, "Revival tent opens in Anacortes Sunday." The Southside area of Anacortes, particularly south of 17th Street, was home to many auto camps during this time. It is possible this event was held at one of those. For example, the 5-12-1921 paper reported the opening of the Anacortes Auto Park for city visitors. "Anacortes Auto Park Plans will be completed Saturday. Big building and clearing bee will give city free auto park. Accommodation provided for 100 autos and campers. Five acres located from 29th to 32nd Street." The 11-18-1928 paper reported Earl Mahan would establish an Auto Camp at 18th and Commercial, and the 2-7-1929 issue reported Ed Trulson would open an Auto Camp at 10th and Commercial.
