Re: Dark Roasted Blend: Ghost Towns of the Pacific Northwest: Bordeaux, Washington

Dark Roasted Blend: Ghost Towns of the Pacific Northwest: Bordeaux, Washington. I have an Google key word alert for the terms “Bordeaux Washington” and a link to the article above arrived in my email today. As I just wrote a post today about Blanch Philby’s untimely death in the town of Bordeaux, I thought this link with pictures of the town would also be of interest to my readers.

Many of the photos in their article originated at the University of Washington Library from their Photo Collection #516. I have seen many of them before, and of the personal snapshots taken by the author of the article I think our family has several of the same ilk.

My article is Death on the Tracks: 1903 Bordeaux Washington

Bordeaux Washington Mill Saws The Last Log In 1941

I have recently been going through some of my old newspapers and found another article about the last days of Bordeaux, WA. This one is from the Daily Olympian dated 26 Sept 1941. I scanned it so I could send it to my uncle in California who used to live in this logging town, but also for my readers so they can understand what happened when a mill town runs out of marketable logs.

Are you looking for more articles written by this blog about the old mill town of Bordeaux? You might want to do a search here using the Lijit search box to the right, or click on these previous stories. Thanks for visiting iPentimento today! :)
