A 1918 license plate dates this photo of three men transferring shingle bolts from a skid to an early truck, somewhere in Washington state. The short sections of logs would be split back at the mill to produce shingles and shakes for roofing. The truck appears to be a Federal, maybe a 1913 model. In 1916 Federal replaced the chain drive shown here with a worm drive.
