At the time of this photograph, American Lumber Company was the largest lumber mill in the world, with a capacity of 300,000 feet of lumber per day. This image offers a panoramic view of the pond where the logs, which averaged 30 inches in diameter, were unloaded from the cars and stored until needed, from whence they were poled to the flume and, floated to the log-jack which automatically picked them up, carried them to the cutting frame where they were sawed into planks of various dimensions, thence to the sorting table which sorted the different sizes preparatory to being conveyed to the immense yards for piling.
This appears to have been an advertisement for the logging company -- did it once hang in a company office? The photography studio name appears at the bottom right photo corner.
This vintage photograph retains its original frame and hanging wire. Location is stamped on a tarnished brass plate mounted to the center of the bottom frame edge.
