Each Saturday morning I review 10 vintage logging, forestry and saw milling photos. This week’s review of vintage logging is about the children who seemed to be ever present even in the hardest living conditions.

Young children are visible in the first rows. They were forced to become men before their time. It was understood that one had to earn his own living. The older men were given menial jobs, and lower pay as they were unable to work as hard as when they were young. Sometimes, they became water-carriers.
A family stands on a large stump. Can you find the dog in the photo?
