(Fresno County; Sequoia National Forest; Millwood) Photographic portrait of nine men and a dog. Albumen photograph. Millwood, Cal. A. R. Moore, n.d. [1896]. 14x20 cm (5 1/2 x 7 7/8 inches), on a larger mount. Millwood, now a ghost town, is located near Hume and Converse Basin in the Kings River Canyon region of California. During the mid 1880's, Hiram C. Smith and A. D. Moore bought up a sizable amount of land around the Big Stump area, and formed The Kings River Lumber Company at the logging town of Millwood (Millwood is located about 1 to 2 miles west-northwest of the Big Stump Grove). Photographer A. R. Moore also advertised "Converse Basin and Kings River Canyon Views." In addition to Millwood, Moore had studios in Visalia and Porterville. When his Porterville studio was destroyed by fire about 1914 he retired. Moore's photographs of logging in the Sequoia groves of the southern Sierra Nevada are uncommon. Provenance: Inscription on verso dated 20 October 1896: "With compliments to W. M. H." Mount chipped at corners and stained, image very good or better. (#168162).
