PORT ANGELES — Ellen Petry of Port Angeles, with toddler Charlie Petry, 2, on her back, takes a photo of Lucia Young, 10, and Vivienne Petry, 6, as they poke their faces through a cutout of Teddy Roosevelt, a Roosevelt elk and a teddy bear set up outside Odyssey Bookshop.

The Roosevelt cutout, part of the “Picture Yourself in Port Angeles, Washington” project, is one of five cutouts, each with its own whimsical theme, placed around the downtown area.

April Bellerud, owner of Odyssey Bookshop and co-sponsor of the panels along with Habitat for Humanity, said the project was designed to elate tourists and bring joy to residents while showcasing aspects of life on the North Olympic Peninsula.

Other cutouts were deployed Thursday at the Conrad Dyar Fountain, Port Angeles City Pier, the pavilion at The Gateway and near the Coho ferry terminal.

Bellerud said the panels would be left in place through the summer, weather and wear permitting.
