The Logging of Yesteryear

Today in the News:  I killed a squirrel with a stick once.

Logging of Yesteryear

All of this pictures were sent to me by Chingachgook.  It is a really nice collection of a period we don't much see in "old" pictures.  I'm especially intrigued by the vehicles that they used.  Enjoy.



 Don't miss the hound at the bottom of the above picture.




 Big Saw!~









If I wore a hat like these boys wear to work, I'd be the talk of the town.




I thought this one was photoshopped for a minute.  Could two horses really pull a load that large?

I guess so!


Might as well hollow this one out and move in.



 Natural bridge.  I wonder how long that would last?






Look.At.That.SAW!




Hope you enjoyed as much as I did!  Thanks Chingachgook!

Pax Domini Sit Semper Vobiscum,

Mike, Oscar, Hotel.....out.

  2. Fantastic pictures! Thanks for sharing. I do believe I was in that mini-house carved out of a log at the Ripley's museum in St. Augestine, FL.

  6. Wow, as a former arborist in the SE New England area I think one of the biggest trees I saw come down using modern tools and techniques was an 8' diameter Oak that was big enough for the guy i was working with that day to have lunch on the butt log like a picnic table. But these make that look like a sapling, I can't imagine what it would have taken to move that kind of wood around. That's when men were men.
