Pic Description: This picture was taken by Fay Calkins after the E. H. Stafford lumber company had left Sand Bay and people had moved into the abandoned buildings. That was around 1920. I have located the spot where the locomotive sat.

Mike,

Do you know the approximate date the picture was taken?

Circa 1920.

You will note that a builting and a raised "thing" are in the background. I figured out the spot where the locomotive was setting based on the forground and background. The main part of the sawmill is hidden by the engine. The thing is the causeway of the dock. The bay would be only a short way away to the right in the picture. The curved rail beds are still visible down by the shore by the remains of the mill.
