Mule team and wagon hauling freight from the Shipping Point in Mendocino, c. 1900. Portuguese Beach is in the background. The first two mules have a set of bells on their harnesses to warn others along the road of their approach. The driver is unknown. This is probably one of Ed Boyle’s outfits taking supplies to Boyle’s Camp up Big River. (The William Ferrill Collection, Kelley House Collection, Kelley House Photographs)
