Description
A black-and-white stereoscopic view published by Underwood & Underwood. The caption reads "Stupendous Log-Raft, containing millions of feet - a Camp's years's work, profit $20,000 - Columbia River, Oregon. Copyright 1902 L, Underwood & Underwood." A huge log raft is floating on the Columbia. Six men can be seen on it; three are standing as if posed for the camera in the foreground, and three others seem to be working in the background. The men wear work clothes such as overalls, and some wear hats. The logs have been stripped of their bark and laid together end-to-end, then chained across. A few loose logs float in the river at the left side of the "raft"; on its right side can be seen the trees that line the shore.
