Mystery Photograph  Number 3

The only clue is a small number "3" on the lens on the headlight. Somewhere in the yellow pine region in the south.  All the skidding and loading is being done the hard way, man power and horse power, I would date this before 1900. Can anyone out there offer up any more clues or can identify this scene? Thanks for looking.

This one is kind of stupid on my part.
I had the answer all along buried in my 5x7 negative collection.
I discovered the mistake while looking for something else.
This actually Wilson Lumber Co. # 3 near Palatka, Fla around the turn of the century.
