This image was captured by Seattle photographer John D. Cress, who specialized in logging scenes and billed himself as "the Forest Fotographer". Our original print identifies this as Dempsey Camp 5, and states that the logging equipment was built by Washington Iron Works, which was active from 1882 until the 1980s. The operation here is extensive - three steam donkeys are in use to haul in logs to the center spar pole.
