|Title||Paul Billingsley at civil defense lookout, Vashon Island, 1942 |
|Caption||During World War II, Seattle-area communities set up volunteer civil defense groups to help in case they were attacked. Men, women and even children joined up to help with such things as fighting fires, running air raid shelters, driving ambulances, and caring for the injured. Each community held periodic drills to make sure that everything would run smoothly in an emergency. In this 1942 photo, Paul Billingsley keeps watch at a lookout on Vashon Island. |
