This lovely vintage postcard is unused. My fabulous sister Kirsten got it for me and brought it on her last trip out to visit this summer. I’ve found this card online postmarked in the mid-1960s. I’ve also found another view in a later postcard (late 1970s, I’d guess) with Marvin and Jeanette Portis listed as owners/operators. Marvin (age 77) and Jeanette (age 74) still live in Anacortes.
The address for the motel is not specific enough to pull it directly, but there are no listings for the North Vue currently.
Anacortes is on Fidalgo Island and had 15,778 residents at the 2010 census. The city is known for the Washington State Ferries Dock (according to Wikipedia, it is the largest passenger and automobile ferry fleet in the United States and the third largest in the world by fleet size).
