Caption Fred Brokens
Description Fred Brokens driving a horse-drawn wagon filled with mill ends. The 1917 city directory listed Brokens as a driver for the Anacortes Ice Company; the 1921 directory listed him as simply, "driver". He later worked as a longshoreman. See Wallie Funk's photos of him in the 1950s when he ran for a seat on the city council. Brokens and his wife Alice lived at 1805 11th Street in 1921.
