Sketched in 2002: A small, independent logging operation at Mitchell Bay, at the east end of Malcolm Island some distance from Sointula. There's nothing like a pile of old tires to bring out the watercolourist in me. There were a couple of men working with a skidder and a boom boat similar to the one illustrated at the log-sorting area nearby. Independent loggers--an anachronism, perhaps, in this era of corporate forestry?
Nearby, at Donegal Head, is an interesting homestead recently settled by a couple from California. They operate a forge and cultivate their fields using oxen. It has the hideous name Dunroven Bed & Breakfast.
Although this photograph is catalogued as a Malcolm Island image from 1923, I wonder whether "Rivers" is Rivers Inlet. Does anyone know who R. Wilson was? Photographer unknown.
