Chute emptying into the Spokane River.

A log at the end of a chute headed into the Spokane River. This chute used a chain system that was normally powered by a steam donkey to move the logs down the chute. The water spraying at the end of the chute was to clean the logs of debris and bark. The logs were be gathered in bundles and moved to the mill. Courtesy of the Museum of North Idaho.
