|Diamond Match Sawmill, Stirling City, California, 1912|
The Stirling City Museum has a collection of photos of early lumbering operations, including the Shay locomotives that were used on the 'winding spur line'. Click on FS in the lower right corner of the gray frame to see the pictures at full size.
Inspired by an email from Posthip Scott, who is "in the wilds of Magalia, out of Paradise, out of Chico. Not really near anything except Stirling City, onetime home to the Diamond Match Company. . . The internet connection up here is a slow version of dial-up, which is another impediment."
I've heard rumors of dial-up connections, but I didn't think anyone really had one.
