The first image is of the exterior of the Alder, Wash., mill around 1905.

The next shot is of the interior of the mill.  Note the size of the saw blade — set up for extremely large logs.

The mill was located on the south side of town near Alder Creek. A wooden dam was constructed in the creek to form a mill pond to dump the logs to the be sawed. (Per Old Alder.)
