Taken in 1903 and 1907, these 255 gelatin silver prints were originally published in American Lumberman, a weekly trade journal.  The majority of the shots document lumber production activities near Diboll in East Texas, including log cutting, transportation, sawmills, and kilns.  The collection also provides a glimpse of everyday life in a company town and in the logging camps.
