This is one of several items noted as either Pratsch or MacKenzie. As MacKenzie was only active as a photographer from about 1903-1911, this is likely later than "ca. 1900" if this is indeed one of his images.

Cataloging on this item notes "many by Colin MacKenzie" with regards to this image. As MacKenzie was only active as a photographer from about 1903-1911, this is likely later than "ca. 1900" if this is indeed one of his images.

When the stern wheeler Skookum cruised down Grays Harbor on this day in 1911, passengers included many of the most important lumbermen, loggers, and other businessmen of Aberdeen and Hoquiam.
