Then and Now: Mount Vernon, WA – 1st and Kincaid St

I am going to start to post, in this blog post, all the photos that I run across taken looking north from or near the corner of 1st and Kincaid in downtown Mount Vernon, Skagit County, WA  I’ll try to get them in the correct year order as we go along.

This particular location was very popular over the years and it is pretty interesting seeing the changes and what did not change.  I will just caption the photos with the approximate date.  As time allows, I will take some time to describe what is showing in the photos.

South End Map – 1912

This 1912 map of the South end of 1st shows about what is there.  The first building on the right is the Union Block, SE corner of 1st and Pine, constructed in 1906.  This map shows that ‘moving pictures’ occupied the middle space in 1912. the Union Block still stands and is the current location of The Thai House, in the middle section.  The bathrooms in The Thai House look like they may have dated from the days of the Pastime!  (no offense, but they look like they belong in a saloon.)
