Timber, Oregon

Title

Timber, Oregon

Description

Sepia-toned image of the few buildings and the railroad stop that made up the town of Timber at this time. The image is dominated by the makeshift flagpole, simply a tall tree that was not felled and has a flag fastened at the very top. Note the unusual wagon in the lower center of the image, and the official appearance of the man standing next to it in a cape and hat. Note, took that one of the main businesses in town is in a canvas tent, but there is a power pole and electric power lines in the image. Barrels and boxes are waiting at the rail stop, apparently to be picked up. The station itself is simply a railroad car.
