The Willamette was a popular brand of steam donkey for Northwest logging operations. From 1901 to 1930, over 3,000 of these workhorses were built in their Portland factory.

In this photo the full crew has gathered on the large skids on which the donkey has been mounted. By using its own winches, the donkey was able to be moved from spot to spot on a large tract. The upward-extending cables indicate this was a high-lead logging camp.
