This areal shot, taken by C. K. Kinsey, of the Eatonville Lumber Company, shows a company in full operation.

WWII was in full force. “Eatonville’s Japanese, both native and foreign born, prepared to move to concentration camps. The Eatonville Lumber Company found it difficult to fill their places, due to the pull of men into war industries.” (History of Southeastern Pierce County.)
