Aerial views of the Tacoma Tideflats area were taken in late August, 1963. There is still room for expansion in areas close to the waterways which lead into Commencement Bay.

These mounds look like enormous scoops of sand but they are really piles of pulp- mill chips located at St. Regis Paper Co.'s Tacoma kraft mill. As seen by air on February 9, 1963, two barges full of chips are being unloaded for use by St. Regis. St. Regis had started to purchase in large quantities chips from waterside suppliers as far away as British Columbia in addition to purchasing locally. Thus, chips were now being received by water, truck and rail. Photograph also shows log booms saved for future use. Photograph ordered by Malcolm McGhie, industrial consultant, New York.(1964 St. Regis Annual Report, p. 11)

Aerial photograph of St. Regis Paper Co.'s Tacoma kraft mill in action. This February 9, 1963, photograph focuses on the large outdoor piles of pulp-mill chips and chip-barge unloading facilities. Tacoma's mill had been buying chips from nearby sawmills and plywood mills for many years. In the early 1960's, however, the mill looked further away and started purchasing, in large volumes, chips from waterside suppliers as far away as British Columbia. These chips would be transported by barge, two of which are shown in the above photograph. St. Regis would also continue to receive chips by truck and rail from its local suppliers. Photograph ordered by Malcolm McGhie, industrial consultant, New York. (1963 St. Regis Annual Report, p. 11)

Milton, originally known as Milltown, was incorporated in August of 1907. This was how the small community appeared in 1963. The business and residential areas were intermingled. Two service stations, one possibly a Shell, were kitty-corner from one another. According to Richards Studio notes, the mayor's home may have been located in the upper portion of this photograph. Milton lies on the Pierce-King County line east of Tacoma. It was a stop on the former Puget Sound Electric Railway which ran from Tacoma to Seattle. A mill was built to provide lumber for the building of the track and tunnel, hence the name Milltown.
