1926 ❖ Tug HUMACONNA Out Yachting

Just for variety, the Queen City Yacht Club's new building, purchased from the government, went "yachting" from West Seattle to the new home at the foot of Edgar Street, on the east shore of Lake Union. The building was loaded on a barge yesterday, hooked up to the tug HUMACONNA and taken from West Seattle to Lake Union in a couple of hours. Jack Power, vice commodore of the club, directed the work of moving the big building. The foundation was ready for the building yesterday, and work is going ahead now.
