Griffith & Graeber Logging (1921 & 1923)

I’m forever thankful that someone took time to grab these shots of the Griffith & Graeber Logging Company.

In this first picture not only do you get to see the guys at the camp, and the one-tree load hauled out in February, 1923, but you can also see the steam donkey at work in background.

The second shot, I believe was taken around 1921 gives you an up close look at the primitive trucks that hauled that big wood out. Of course, back then they were state-of-the-art.

    • I was thinking that it was interesting that a guy was wearing a tie out in the woods. Different time. 🙂
