If you read the previous two posts, you’ll already know that last week on Ebay last week there was a wall card up for auction that I didn’t win. It had all sorts of shots of the Elbe Lumber & Shingle Company, as well as the logging camp and scene of the Tacoma Eastern Railroad.

Let me know if you recognize anyone!
