    I love these old photos. There, Ernie, is some evidence that it wasn’t the loggers that caused the big floods.

  2. Yes, the loggers might have caused some erosion, but the floods would have had the same water level, with or without logging. Also, I saw whole hillsides of virgin timber soak up and slip into the canyons below. It was an amazing rainfall. He old-timers talk about floods that were not recorded. Plus there was historic water marks that left a lot unexplained. I have a feeling that we ain’t seen nothing yet!

      I’ll keep an eye out.
      You can also head up to Humboldt State http://library.humboldt.edu/humco/holdings/photoresults.php
      It looks like they have quite a few, in cluding a Creamery ?!?!, but they aren’t digitized.
      If you go to the Special Collections Room and look through their files, they can scan the ones you want (that is how I got the flood photo). I’ll also keep an eye out when I dig through other photo sources. Good luck !
