Celebrating the Armistice agreements in Tacoma, November 11, 1918

On November 11, 1918, in celebration of the end of World War I, a giant American flag was unfurled from the top of the Perkins building so that it draped down the side of the building. As the Armistice agreements were signed, Tacomans flooded out of their offices and factories and into the streets to celebrate. NWR Images, http://goo.gl/woFKlm
