Each Saturday morning I review 10 vintage logging, forestry and saw milling photos. This week’s review of vintage logging is about the big trees that once stood tall in our forests.

Note accompanying the Minnihan photograph collection (from an unknown source): The contributor of this collection of photographs, Edward J. Minnihan, was born in 1914. His father, Michael E. ‘Bud’ Minnihan was born in 1883 near Sequim, WA. His parents were Michael E. and Rachel Minnihan. They moved to the Lyre River area, establishing a homestead shortly after 1883. Michael (Jr.) began working for the Hall and Bishop Logging Company in 1900, when he was 17 years old. His brothers and a half-brother Cliff Johnson, and his brother-in-law, Burt Mills, also worked for the Hall and Bishop Logging Company.
