I am in desperate need for a graphic of an old Sawmill with a Headrig. I would be willing to pay for the correct one. I would like to have the headrig in the front with the shed fading off into the distance. Thanks in advance for any help on this one. I know it is a tough one.

Kathy would love to help, but I haven't got a clue what a headrig is or I could have drawn it for you - I did find this website w w w.jacksonlbrharvester.com/index.html which seems to have pictures relating to sawmills might be worth a gander.

Thanks for the link Frank. I took a look at the site. Everything there is fairly modern. I am still looking. Need something from the Early 1900's.
A head rig is two round saw blades one on top (above) of the other the larger one being on the bottom. Thanks for your efforts.

I thought it had possibilities myself when I read what was needed. Want I should find an old shed/shack too? ;)

You can try searching for Darius Kinsey photographs. He was a prominent photographer in the late 1800's to early 1900's in the logging community in Western Washington. Other photographers from that PNW era were Monner & Atkeson.
