These are great shots taken in Kapowsin, and some by Kinsey, the professional photographer of the time, who went around a captured the Northwest logging era.
The first picture shows the crew, as well as a steam donkey off to the left. The second shot shows one of the men working through a large tree with a handsaw. (My shoulders get sore just looking at this picture.) If you look at the third picture you can see the logging camp nestled down there.
St. Paul and the Tacoma Lumber Company were big players at the time.
Want to thank Sandra Wood for sharing these great shots. There are more to come. Her dad had kept them over the years and she is sharing them with us now.
