Caspar Lumber Company – Sawmill Educational Documentary (Video)

The YouTube title of this vid says, “Caspar Lumber Company – circa 1930 Sawmill Educational Documentary – WDTVLIVE42”. I think the first part of the vid was taken in 1904 when Abby Krebs, the then owner of the Caspar Mill, had the roof taken off to let in enough light for the filming. The film was shown at the St. Louis World.s Fair of 1904 to advertise the quality of redwood.

The first part of the video is part of a commercial vid by Catenary Videos, “California’s North Coast Logging Railroads” which we have running as an interpretative aid to our Mendocino Coast Logging layout in Fort Bragg.
