Flash from the past

At first glance this could be a scene from the late Thirties. These two Franklin classics are part of a gathering of Franklin owners basing in Anacortes for three days, leaving Thursday morning. This photograph was taken shortly after some of the car owners parked in front of the Wilson Building downtown. The cars drew a number of photographers from nearby shops and restaurants.

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
