Two Albumen Photographs of Lumbering in Eureka, Calif., c. 1890.
1890s. 9 ½ x 7 inch photographs on 11 x 13 mounts. Very Good. Item #CAT0185
The first photograph captures a bearded man atop a stump, peering in the forest, with sunlight pouring through a stand of redwoods. The second shows redwood rounds loaded on a train car, with “Exelsior Redwood Co. Eureka Cal.” etched into the negative. All of the train workers are posed for the photograph, along with several men and a young girl in the background. A well-preserved pair of images in very good condition with good contrast and some wear and toning to mounts.
