The Edward Hines Company purchased the Dee Mill in 1955, along with some other holdings of the Oregon Lumber Company.  You can read about the company and its activities in Oregon in this Oregon Encyclopedia post. It looks like it was close to the peak of its operation in this image.  You can orient yourself by finding the dam on the river, the Dee highway to the left of the mill, and the bridge across the river with roads to Green Point/Kingsley as well as Punchbowl Falls.
