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.
