That’s a pretty big shop. Look at the height of the building. I’m guessing Hammond Lumber. Doesn’t it look like one of the shops in and around Scotia?
But, shoot, there were so many of those shops around in those days. It’s great to see Sun Valley Floral Farms take over and recycle the Simpson mill site on the Arcata Bottoms instead of building new buildings.
It’s a little late Ross, but I was hoping you or Ernie B. or someone could explain how that circular sawblade was used?
Saw blades like this ran vertically and cut off slabs from old growth Redwood or Douglas Fir. Those of us that were fortunate to tour the Pacific Lumber Company mill in Scotia before the 1990’s saw these in action.
