old faces from the lumber logging days

The communities in this area rest on the foundation of the lumber industry, here are some logging faces from the collection of the Huronia Museum, Midland, Ontario.

These imagesof loggers and lumbermen are scans done this month by me for the museum, of 35mm slides reproducing the original photographic prints from 1869-1953.  Those slides were made before 1996, probably in the 70s.  These are shown here to show the flavour of the working life in the early days of logging on Georgian Bay.
