LOGGING PHOTOS 1918
(top) U.S. Army Air Corps soldiers - 1918 near Aberdeen, Washington. The fellow in the slouched hat to the far left is Wiliam Fecht.
(bottom) "Skid Road" incline lined with smaller logs, used when watered down to pull heavy logs to mill transportation. Often these makeshift roads led to water. The skid road area in Seattle, Washington about this time became notorious for its flop houses, cheap bars etc., hence the term's inclusion as Skid Row in modern slang. This photo was taken in 1918 near Aberdeen, Washington.
