Caption Air compressor 1957
Description 134 BW photos approximately 3.5 x 5" (some are smaller) documenting activities, settings and structures at the Morrison and Coos Bay Mills, c. 1940s-60s. Photographer(s) unknown. Photos not labelled.
According to Anacortes resident Ken Morrison, "this photo series depicts the former Coos Bay Pulp and Timber Paper Mill in Anacortes (later Scott Paper) during a period of upgrading in the late 50s and early 60s. Photos include parts of the Morrison Mill (north of Paper Mill), which Coos Bay Pulp bought (in 1947?). Morrison Mill was operated by the Morrison family until 1953 when it closed. It was re-opened briefly (1955) for a special milling project which my dad, Jim Morrison, and a few other former mill employees carried out. From 1955 on, the property was owned and used exclusively by the Paper Mill. As the photos show, many of the Morrison Mill buildings were demolished. The office was moved and later became home to the Anacortes Yacht Club. The Morrison Mill smokestack was used by Scott Paper into the 1970s for steam generation."
