Near Everett Washington Mill, Boom logging RPPC Postcard
Boom logging is the sorting of floating logs into rafts or booms for transporting to nearby mills.
RPPC - One over Everett Washington Mills with a great photograph of floating booms.
" On the back there is some very interesting notes about this operation. Read below.
Booming Ground Leased from the Gov - where it is calm and my blows(?) won't take them away.
8 Sections make a raft.
From Washington Canadian (10 or 15 rafts)
Oregon Cedar (c logs very large)"
Boom where put in a circle.......I think the person writing these notes was listening to presentation about booming and decided to write down quick facts. Just a guess on my part.
