Everett Police Jailer Samuel Mellison had served as scout with Buffalo Bill and Gen. George Armstrong Custer during the Indian Wars. He moved to Everett in 1900, joined the police force in 1905, and rose in the ranks. He still sat a horse well enough to lead parades in the City of Smokestacks for many years.
Though no photos have been located of Buffalo Bill's Wild West appearance here in Everett, this image of the Barnum & Bailey circus parade at Hewitt and Colby, taken about one month before the Wild West appearance in 1908, gives the viewer an idea of what the crowd scene might have been like.
1912 photo of the Women's Union Label League in Everett. The group encouraged purchasing goods with union labels attached. Note the women's dress, and the wooden plank streets within the downtown area.
