Pushing LUMBER


All along the Pacific Northwest we live with the history of the lumber industry, present and past. I have no identification as to where this shot was taken, but it could be at a number of ports from Northern California on up to the border with Canada and beyond.

  1. About the time that this photo was taken, the general opinion was that the Eastern forests were exhausted. Western forests seemed infinite and much of this lumber probably ended up in the cities on East coast.

  2. Intriguing photo - imagine the labor unloading and neatly stacking all that wood?

    1. I keep thinking of the game pick-up-sticks.
