    LOL!

    The log is probably freshly harvested old-growth. Dunno about Toolmaker51 :-P

    That is a massive log building they're putting up; any idea of where it is? The Photographer's credit says Portland OR, but it could be anywhere in the Pac NW...

    Portland is correct. It burned down August 17, 1964.
