This action photo of a company picnic tug of war was taken by Ralph Eddy, using his new hand-held camera. Previously he generally used large wooden cameras with glass-plate negatives. The more portable camera allowed him to get out of the studio and into the community, including this Oregon City Woolen Mills event. From about 1919 through 1923 Eddy captured many scenes of Oregon City life, before moving on to what would become the focus of his career - scenic postcards.

-- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon from the original negative, courtesy of the Clackamas County Historical Society.
