Photo Analysis: Can you identify anyone?

We recently had some photos digitized and realized we don’t really know a whole lot about them. We are looking to gain as much information as possible about the two photographs – specifically, the who and when. Click on the pictures to see them larger.

The first picture in question is just listed in our catalog as “Group of Men at Logging Site with Machinery (donkey).” Nothing is known about who the men are, where it was, and when it was taken (we can guess about 1900-1915.)

The second picture is of Climax Logging Engine 1 from the Preston Mill Co. The person sitting on the engine is possibly Hugo Johnson. There is no other identification.
