Description Caption on front of image, "Largest tree in Washington. Circumference 100'. Vicinity Snoqualmie Falls, four miles North Bend. No. 880, Kinsey and Kinsey, 1896." On the rear of image, "If you want views of Washington Forest Scenes, you should secure those photographed by Kinsey & Kinsey, Photographers for the Seattle & International Railway. Their experiences in securing such pictures extends over a period of five years, in all parts of the Puget Sound Country. Among their large collection are photos representing the largest trees, the highest trees, mammoth logs, etc.; also, the manner in which the trees are felled, hauled out of the woods and loaded on the cars." Darius Kinsey took many photographs in Anacortes.
