These images were taken with my Nikon D810 and nifty fifty lens, except for the
one above that Julie took with her Nikon D7000 and new, old 35mm f/1.8 prime.

Olney is an unincorporated community and former company town in Clatsop County,
Oregon, United States, on Oregon Route 202 about eight miles south of Astoria.

The town of Olney was named after Oregon Territory Supreme Court justice Cyrus Olney,
who was from Astoria.

There were several logging camps near Olney, many originally only accessible by boat
up the Youngs River or by Albert S. Kerry's Columbia and Nehalem River Railroad.
In 1910, the Western Cooperage Company camp was established in Olney. It was run
by the Tidewater Timber Company from 1923 to 1943. Western Cooperage provided
company housing for its workers and in 1915 the population was 50, which was near
its maximum. Olney post office was established in 1875 and ran until 1950. Today
Olney still has a general store.
