1131 Dock Street

I found myself on Dock Street in Tacoma today and stopped at 1131 Dock Street. I learned a few things about this wooden building that was built in 1929. It was originally a machine shop (and maybe still is?) and had been the home of the Sea Scouts until they moved in 2005 or 2006. It appears that the My Girl Charter Yacht Company is based out of the building. There was a giant puff ball kind of plant in front of the building :).

Candy, Tofu, Guitars, Law

The building at 1546 Market Street was constructed in 1928 as the Burton Confectionery (Jean Burton, operator).  I’m sure it had several use. For instance it once housed Tofu Company Food Products and more recently the Vashon Guitar Company.  It appears to be an attorneys office now.
