In this signed photo by John F. Ford we see yet another view of animals pulling logs along a skid road. In this case, it's oxen, and the location of the road along a river makes it especially scenic. We don't know where this photograph was taken, but we do know most of Ford's logging photos were taken on one side or the other of the lower Columbia River. While he maintained a studio in Portland for a few years, Ford's home town was Ilwaco, Washington.
