William Alonso Clapshaw had a documentarian's eye for the work going on outside near Forest Grove in the 1910s. He took photographs of road and bridge construction, the millpond and a nearby sawmill, an electric train station, and a brickyard at Wilkesboro near the town of Banks. For more photographs of labor, see his images of Farm Work.
