Summary note
Consists of three large sepia-tinted silver gelatin photographic prints. The images document logging crews and operations in or near Gray's Harbor County, Washington. One of the photographs shows a logging crew standing on the Clemons Logging Company's Heisler No. 2 locomotive, which was a standard gauge 90-ton 3-truck sold to the company in 1928. Along with the crew, there are logged stands of timber in the background. There is a caption in negative at the bottom of the photograph: "No 2 / Clemons Log Co / C Kinsey Photo." The other two photographs show Northwestern Lumber Company crews from Camp 14. One of the photographs is taken at a portrait orientation to show the height and extensive rigging attached to the sole tree trunk in the mid-distance. The photographer is on the rail line, and the image shows the crew and a steam donkey at work at the base of the tree further down the rail. The inscription, "No 206 / Camp 14 / Northwestern Lmbr Co / C Kinsey Photo," is at the bottom of the photograph in negative. The other Camp 14 photograph shows six men from the logging crew posing on one of the two steam donkeys pictured in the photograph. The inscription, in negative, reads "Camp #14 / Northwestern Lmbr Co / C. Kinsey Photo." The crew appear to be at the base of the same tree decked with rigging in the other Camp 14 photograph.
