An evocative album documenting the Northern California lumbering industry in the early 20th century.

Comprising images by at least eight identified photographers, this album begins with a range of photos of lumberjacks posing in front of massive felled, or soon-to-be felled, Redwood trees in Humboldt County. Images show the transportation of lumber, the process of cutting the trees, and the loading of logs into a river. A series of images picture a visit to the Stump House in Eureka—a fifty-foot long home carved from a redwood log that welcomed visitors and had a gift shop. Photos taken in Weed show the town from an elevated view, Mount Shasta (seen from several different vantage points), stores, hotels, and the Weed Lumber Company, its mill, and mill pond. Photos taken in Scotia picture street scenes, Scotia’s monorail, trout fishing, an aerial view of Pacific Lumber Company’s massive lumber factory, a Redwood log on a log slip, and “unloading the logs into the mill pond.” Several images document the Redwood forests in Bull Creek Flat, one image showing a burl. A number of images picture forests and trees in Carson Woods in Fortuna and one color postcard shows two men “cutting down big Redwoods in Humboldt County, California.” An image by R. E. Stinson shows Mt. Lassen’s Eruption on 22 August 1914. Other images show Susanville “from the air”; Yreka Inn in Yreka; Shamrock Auto Court on Highway 99 near Yreka (advertising modern cabins and running water); the town of Weott; and a street scene on the State Highway in Yreka.

A substantial representation of the early twentieth century lumbering scene in northern California.
