Historic Images of Beaver Falls

Post by Splintercat » May 12th, 2009, 8:41 pm

Found these on the web, recently - Beaver Falls back in the day when logging was king in Columbia County. Note the convenient bridge for access to photos during high-runoff periods..! :)

Nice, but...it's short on beavers. Where's the long-toothed tail-slappers?

Looks like there's some sort of dam above the falls in that first one. The beavers must have built it. :D Nice find Tom. I love seeing those old photos.

Thanks for finding that link, bcostley - I need to properly credit that second image.
