Comments

Hammond bought Little River Redwood about 1931. This included their timber, town, rolling stock and rails partway to Samoa and mill. Many employees also stayed and went to work for Hammond. They closed the mill as they had one in Samoa. They needed the railroad from Crannell to join theirs. Crews included, L to R: 1. J. McCowan, 2. Dewey Rimby, 3. Ken Cole, 4. J. Birnie, 5. W. Buck, 6.
