|Title||Log pond, North Bend, ca. 1905 |
|Date||ca. 1905 |
|Caption||In 1907, about 400 people lived in North Bend. Most were employed in logging or lumber milling. The lumber was shipped to market over a branch line of the Northern Pacific Railroad. The local shingle mill made most of the wooden pipe used in Seattle's Cedar River water supply line.|
This photographic postcard, probably made between 1907 and 1912, shows a boomman standing on a huge log at the edge of the North Bend Lumber Company's log pond. He uses his long pole to sort logs in the pond and direct them towards the sawmill.
