The Northwest Door Company manufactured doors, windows, flooring, and other lumber products and was located in Portland, Oregon. The company was established in 1893 and its manager was Samuel Connell and its superintendent was H.A. Connell. The manufacturing plant was located on the East side of Portland at River Street and Albina Avenue. Connell owned a sawmill about four miles from Clatskanie which furnished timber to be processed at the plant in Portland, suggesting that these photographs may have been taken somewhere in Columbia County. The Portland plant was destroyed in a fire in 1914. There was also a Northwest Door Company in Tacoma that operated in the late 1930's and 1940's that does not appear to be related.
