Many images from a scrapbook compiled by lumberman Leon J. Kleiner (b. 1894), a Polish immigrant to Canada, documenting the history of the lumbering industry in western Canada between 1914 and 1920. Many of the images were used to supplement the text of an oral history interview with Leon’s brother, Moritz “Morris” Kleiner (1889-1985), titled Recollections of Family, Community, and Business: Poland, Canada, and Tacoma, Washington, 1889-1974 (Berkeley, Calif: The Bancroft Library, 1974). Malca Kleiner Chall, the daughter of Morris Kleiner, conducted the interview in 1972.] (Source: Forest History Society)
