Here at the Fresno Flats Research Library, we sometimes find packages left on our doorstep anonymously. On one such occasion we found an envelope containing old photos of local logging operations which we recognized. and could identify.
However, one photo looks out of place, and we are unable to identify the location. The image shows men standing on logs floating on what appears to be a slow moving river, or a millpond. Can anyone out there in Cyberland tell us where and approximately when the photo was taken?
Please send your ideas to Roger Mitchell, Librarian & Historian, Fresno Flats Museum and Historic Park, firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (559) 683-6984. You can also leave your comments here.
Follow-up on last month’s History Mystery #22
Thanks to Mary Sholler for this comment – “I believe this is the first dormitory at the old North Fork Indian Mission, ca. 1910-1915. I found similar pictures in our Madera County Native American Digital History Collection. There is a description in our Correspondence file as well that describes the old Girls Dormitory as being quite large.”
The Mono Museum can now follow-up with Mary to get more information about this building.
