Click here to see our catalog of old Anacortes movies
In the early 1950s Anacortes got an industrial boost from Shell Oil Company's decision to build a refinery at March Point on Fidalgo Island. The film "Place of Promise" - made by Rarig Motion Pictures of Seattle - shows regional scenes and some Anacortes activities (look for the Luvera's Market delivery truck) as well as visits to some of Shell's other refineries.
