In the next slide is the fishers, they fish from the rivers and around the pacific ocean. After fishing they would sell them to other countries or ship them around the areas. Robert Hume is a fisherman, he was the first to build a plant that used cans and high heat to preserve fish, they were called canneries.
In the forests next to us are some loggers. Their job is to chop down trees and send them down the river for boats to take. The main place that needed the wood was San Francisco, California. Ships would pull the wood all the way to San Francisco. little by little, small lumber and shipping towns sprang up along the Puget sound. The small towns of Olympia, Seattle and Tacoma grew because of the logging industry. Many docks and ports grew larger and larger. Later, this opened up opportunities for other kinds of shipping and trading outside of Washington.
In the last cell we have farmers, white men and native men working together, this opened the door for chines and Hispanic men to join in too. Some of the main things that they grew were wheat and hops and apples, apples had become a important crop by the 1900's. Irrigation projects made it possible to run successful orchards in Yakima, Wenatchee and Okanogan Valleys.
In the Puget sound lowlands and cascade mountains miners discovered coal. coal was one of the resources that heated up homes during there age. Because of this lots of chines and African-america were able to find jobs mining. Because of this two towns, Roslyn and Cle Elum, sprang up overnight.
