These shots of Pacific National Lumber Co., out of National, Wash., abnd Westfork Timber, out of Mineral, Wash., were taken by renowned photographer Kinsey in 1926 and 1928. He (and his brother) were able to catch the loggers, the forests and the logger’s life like no other photographer.
Pacific National Lumber Co., is no longer, but Westfork is still around.
