Starting in 1917 the Army sent 10,000 soldiers to Oregon and Washington logging camps to cut timber as part of an effort to harvest 10 million board-feet of spruce a month for aircraft construction. In this print we see a group gathered in their bunkhouse for music-making, card playing, and catching up on their reading. The prominent wood stove and the clothes hung up to dry remind us that we are indeed in the Pacific Northwest. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
