A group of loggers poses on the tracks in their camp at Elma, in Grays Harbor County on the west end of Washington State. The size of the kitchen crew indicates they were well fed!

The original photo for this image states that Mack's Camp was part of the S. E. Slade Lumber Company. Slade was a large firm with multiple partners during several decades from the late 1800s to the early 1900s. In 1908 the Slades-Wells Logging Company employed nearly 400 loggers, and Slade owned the largest sawmill in nearby Aberdeen, with more than three hundred employees. This photo was taken by H. G. Nelson, a photographer based in Elma.
