The Press continues its look back at Issaquah’s logging-days roots. In this photograph dated from 1916-1917, Peter Erickson can be seen on the left standing next to the Preston Mill Co’s logging boss James Matson. Both men are part of the crew logging along Raging River above Upper Preston. The steam donkey is from the Road Engine family used to pull logs long distances.
