Vintage logging – Slip tongue carts

Each Saturday morning I review 10 vintage logging, forestry and saw milling photos. This week’s review of vintage logging is about winter scenes including sleighs and other means of transport over the snow.

Click on the images to view larger pictures.

I only have 6 photos featuring slip tongue carts so the other four will be woodsmen and workers from days gone by.
