Vintage Logging – Stacks of lumber
Each Saturday morning I review 10 vintage logging, forestry and saw milling photos. This week’s review of vintage logging is about the stacks of lumber that were made over the year.
In what is now Mount Rainier National Park which was established in 1899.
Photograph shows team of mules pulling wagons in lumber yard of Cohasset Mill.
1899 Port Ludlow, Wash. June 16. Lumber mill with stacks of lumber.
1900 Lumber wagon pulled by horses.
Likely Sierra Lumber Company, Butte County, California.
One of the few photos I have seen in a commercial/industrial setting where the lumber was vertically stacked.
A more current picture, just here because of its uniqueness.
