Clark Kinsey captured here the sizable logs being transported by rail to the Mineral Lake Lumber Co. (purchased by West Fork Timber Co. in 1927). In fact, you can see the company sign way in the background. Judging by the stacks going in the back, the air in Mineral is fresher today.
Interesting fact about Mineral: Once it had several producing mines the ore from which was used for production of arsenic. It was named for mineral deposits along Mineral Creek, and producing mines a half dozen miles from the town. (Wash. Library).
