Antique Photograph Mount Rainier - two women in front of the Twi

Black and white photograph, white border, 8 x 10 1/2 inches; mild wear at edges and corner tips, overall very good.

The image shows two women before a small wooden building bearing a sign that reads: quot;Washington Forest Fire Assn / Twin Creek Ranger Station.quot; On the back of the photo: quot;Twin Creeks Ranger Station on White River Highway to Mount Tacomaquot; (Mount Rainier was once commonly referred to as Tacoma). The women are wearing dresses with heavy coats and cloche hats. One is sitting on the steps and one is standing, holding a branch of fiddle head fern. Behind the building are dense and towering trees.

Established in 1908, The Washington Forest Fire Association (WFFA) was originally a fire-prevention and fire-fighting organization. Once non-indigenous settlers began arriving in the last half of the nineteenth century in what became Washington state, fire danger became a problem that residents and business owners were not prepared for, and when fires struck it was often catastrophic. WFFA built fire lookout houses and lookout towers throughout western Washington, providing great views for rangers to spot fires early in more remote locations and thus to alert fire fighters to the threat more quickly, helping to curb fires before they got out of hand.
