Default Sawmills in Clinton Iowa 1885

Clinton Herald

This appeared in the Clinton Herald Saturday March 18, 2017. Not much about boats, but certainly about the major industry on the Upper Miss in the late 1800s. Not mentioned is probably the biggest owner Lamb. Of course the lumber industry is of interest to me since Rock Island was the home of Weyerhaueser Denkmann.

Sorry but this link goes to the e edition of the paper, don't know how long it will be good, but I can't see how to delete this thread. Oh well, nobody's reading on a Saturday anyway :-)
