Life in Chapman, Oregon 1920's

My paternal grandmothers family, Burger, lived in, Chapman in Columbia County a logging community. The Depression was hard on them but several of them did very well during WWII. Someone took lots of photographs probably with a small crude box camera that reveal a lot about the people and their life there. Unfortunate that I have none of the negatives so I have to settle for scans of the tiny contact prints.  The scans though when enlarged reveal quite a bit more details.   These photographs I've been scanning were taken probably around 1924-26 .
