Description Oregon Lumber Co. bunk house near Hale's ranch above Whitney in 1912.

Brooks Hawley note: This photo was taken by Herb Green. Bill Scott was camp boss and had this camp built in 1910. It was used about six years. This bunk house was first built with the logs at the eves projecting 10 or 15 feet to support the roof for a porch, but the logs were cut off, as in this picture, because the snow was too heavy. The cook house was also built of logs to the right of this picture, but there is no picture of it. Claude Green was at this camp when he first met his wife in April 1913 and they were married in June.
