Description SVRy. Loading logs in Sumpter Valley.

Brooks Hawley note: Leslie Doane thinks this looks about right for logging by Vess Hughes along by Taylors, Bacons, Deans (along Dean's spur, maybe toward Dean Creek, in the lower end of the valley). It looks dangerous, and it was. Leslie Doane says it was in this type of loading that his uncle Jimmy Miller was killed loading a flat car near his house near the first McEwen school.
