|Title||Big log at North Bend Lumber and Sawmill, ca. 1913 |
|Date||ca. 1913 |
|Caption||In 1907, about 400 people lived in North Bend, Washington. 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, postmarked April 1, 1913, shows cuts made in a large log at the North Bend Lumber Company.
|Notes||Written on verso: [Message:] Dear Edith, We are fine & hope you folks the same. I hope you like your new home. I will write more next time. They have my house all torn up fixing it all over for me. 2 carpenters here but will be nice when they get through. With love.|
