Green Point, Washington Park. This image was hand-colored by photographer Charles Judd. It came from the collection of Cora Allmond, wife of Douglass Allmond; he was an extremely pivotal individual in the creation of open spaces on Fidalgo Island and Deception Pass State. Cora was influential through her work in the Washington women's club movement; see WF 0600. The 03-04-1926, ANACORTES AMERICAN reported Allmond's statement that his "hobby is parks and he stresses the necessity of securing suitable wooded park sites on the island before the original stand of timber is destroyed." The same article reported that Allmond was instrumental in the creation of Washington Park and donated some of the land for it. At the time of his death in 1932, Allmond was a member of the National Parks Association of Washington, as well as the State Society of the Conservation of Wildflowers and Native Trees.
Photographer Charles Judd's colorized views of local scenery were extremely popular in the years prior to the development of color film. He often advertised them in the ANACORTES AMERICAN during the period 1918-1930. An advertisement in the 12-12-1929 paper read, "Framed pictures of Puget Sound scenery make nice gifts. We live in the most beautiful place in the world. Give one of Judd's Colored Photographs to somebody and advertise the fact with the Christmas gift."
