Here we see a big tree coming down and then paraded by Murphy Logging in the 50s. The tree was so big, it was hauled out on more than one truck.
Eatonville’s, Murphy Logging is no longer in operation, but their photos live on. These six shots have a little for everyone, whether you’re into vintage chainsaws, enjoy seeing what Mashell Ave. looked like in the 1950s or appreciate old logging trucks.
The men posing by the log in the last picture are from left to right, Corbett Hale, Don Murphy and Neil Christensen. If you have more information on these photos, please add your comments.
