A community Christmas tree at Commercial Avenue and Sixth Street is at the center of this 1930 holiday celebration, which was photographed by Ferd Brady.

Events such as this show how everyday life went on in Anacortes, despite the Great Depression.

To learn more about life in that era, which was challenging but not particularly depressing, be sure to visit the Anacortes Museum’s current exhibit “All in the Same Boat: Anacortes in the Great Depression.”
