2. 110,000-feet-of-logs-July-4,-1887-WEB

Dated July 4, 1887, this subject looks east towards Beacon Hill over a log train probably headed for the Stetson Post Mill. The suburban home and its neighbors can be found just below the low butte that once adorned the north “end” of Beacon Hill, which before the Jackson Street Regrade (1907-09) and the Dearborn Cut (1912) was part of a continuous rolling ridge that ran from Portage Bay to Renton. The position of the “suburban” home is also indicated in a marked detail below. Courtesy, Ron Edge
