This picture is entitled “C. Boettcher log pond head works, Alder, Wa.”.

The pond and the logs may not seem all that impressive at first glance, but look closely. There is a man standing on one of the logs to give you some scale. Many of these trees are massive!

  1. Charlie Boettcher’s “pond” must have relocated or changed considerably by the 1940-50’s. I remember swimming in his “pond” during those years on trips our family took from Bremerton, where we lived, to ‘the Carlson farm”, our family’s farm.
