I can’t tell by the image what logging outfit this was. If you have some information, please share.
There has always been a need for straight, long logs, which are used for masts for sailboats, and the like. In fact, there is still a mill in Aberdeen, Grays Harbor Historical Seaport, that mills these logs for boats and flag poles. Hollywood hired the mill not long ago to create the masts for Pirates of the the Caribbean.
