Catalog Number WF 2335
Caption ADMIRAL NULTON run aground
Description WF 2333-2336 are images of the vessel ADMIRAL NULTON which ran aground in dense fog near Ship Harbor on September 26, 1932. The vessel, commanded by Captain Bonham, was loaded with box shooks from Anacortes Lumber & Box and with canned salmon from Farwest Fisheries. The Coast Guard answered the ship's distress call. It was pulled from the beach by the tug CREOLE of Seattle and the tug SOUND from Puget Sound Tug and Barge Company. The ship then proceeded to Seattle under her own power. This series of photos were unidentified in the Brady Collection. However, this excerpt from the 9-29-1932 ANACORTES AMERICAN indicates that Brady probably took these images. "The roads were crowded with cars and people making the trip down to the beach to see the large ship ashore. Pictures were taken by both professional and amateur photographers of the city."
