Caption Marineer Pageant Salmon Barbeqeu
Description The Salmon Barbeque was an integral feature of the Marineers' Pageant. The 7-17-1940 ANACORTES AMERICAN stated that 2000 freshly caught salmon would be barbequed over an open fire, Indian fashion, by R. Stanley of Bellingham. The event would take place on the "east side of community building at 6th and Q." An August 1940 issue reported that 10,000 attended that year's Salmon Barbeque held "near Community Building ... where salmon was roasted in block-long pits." This view is on 8th Street next to Causland Park. The Methodist Church may be seen in left rear of photo. This image is of the tables and people lining up for salmon, and it is labeled "#15" on the front. See WF 1421, 1422, 1424 for more views of the barbeque.
