Caption 1937 Marineer Parade
Description This image of the Marineers' Pageant Parade looks north on Commercial Avenue at 10th Street. A long line of cars follows the Marineers' Pageant float and they appear to bring up the end of the parade. See WF 1543. Trulson Motors is in the foreground. Herman Trulson operated Trulson Motors at 1004 Commercial from c. 1921-1975. He began business with Edmond Haugen in 1911 when they purchased the funeral parlor of Lea Dodge. By 1912 they had also opened a paint store; see WF 0111. By 1917 these business partners had gone their separate ways with Haugen taking the funeral parlor and Trulson taking the paint store. The 1917 city directory list Trulson Paints and Wallpaper at 707 Commercial. By 1921 Trulson had begun a different business, Trulson Motors at 1004 Commercial. On the right side of the photo, just north of Trulson, is the Anacortes Gas Company.
