|Title||Seattle Cedar Lumber Manufacturing Company showing a worker operating a forklift, Seattle, 1959 |
|Caption||The Seattle Cedar mill, located just west of the north end of the Ballard Bridge, opened in 1890. This and other Ballard mills turned out millions of shingles and board feet of lumber until the shrinking supply of cedar logs brought about the end of the industry. The mill was rebuilt after a huge fire in 1958, but closed for good in 1973.|
In this photo, a workman at the rebuilt Seattle Cedar mill moves a stack of lumber using a forklift.
|Notes||On side of forklift in image: Yale.|
Handwritten on sleeve: SEATTLE, SEATTLE CEDAR LUMBER CO.
