Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Deakin Tract album contains 54 photographic prints showing mining and timber lands in Butte, Plumas and Tehama counties, California circa 1889. The photographs are circular, about 6.5 cm. in diameter, and are possibly Kodak I prints. The title of the album is taken from an inscription on the inside front cover by F.H. Deakin to J. F. Nash. The cover is stamped with the names Janson, Deakin, Nash, and Lynch. These men are featured throughout the album, as identified in several of the captions. The album primarily details facets of lumbering at the time, showing trees before and after cutting, logging equipment, flumes, log chutes, a hydraulic elevator, mill ponds, and lumber mills. Many of the photographs feature the above-named men posed in these settings. A few photographs feature mining activities.
