South Tacoma Business District

The South Tacoma Business District has Deep Roots!


South Tacoma Business Club

A large sign makes it adamantly clear that Tacoma City Light did not pay for the electricity used for the outdoor Christmas street decorations in the South Tacoma business district in December of 1952.

The South Tacoma Business Club paid for the private power.

Crouching next to a portable high voltage generator are Steve Pease and C.A. Erdahl, commissioner of public utilities. Standing on the truck are Bill Brown and Herb Ford. The club president, W.D. McDougal, is in the foreground.
