Caption Cheerie Park -- Tally-Ho auto
Description This "bus" took sightseers out along Lake Forest Drive. Anacortes businessman John Wagner is in the rear seat of auto at far side. His wife and sons are probably in the seat next to him. Cheerie Auto, "Park Tally Ho" with group of nineteen (19) people aboard an auto-bus for an excursion around Anacortes on Lake Forest Drive (later changed to Heart Lake Road). The ANACORTES AMERICAN, date unknown, states: "From the collection of Mrs. John Wagner comes this choice photograph, a holdover from the days of gauntlets, dusters and goggles--all standard driving equipment in the early motoring years. Pictured above is a "Cheerie Auto, Park-Tally-Ho" with a capacity of 20 occupants and one of the first automobiles in Anacortes. Included in the "Cheerie" are Wagners and Lowmans off on an all-day outing."
