Now That's a Truck! - Old Time Logging

Thanks to Blaine Kemp for sending this. These are some cool pictures of the old logging days!
Don't you wish that you could have been there? This is almost unbelieveable.
 Fwd: Fw: "Before Chain Saws" A bit of history
Mankind has certainly come a long way.
         
 

Just look at the length of the hand saw they needed... 

 

When the Northwest logging industry was still young ...
...and look at the size of the heavy duty axes...
The work required very strong and courageous men... 
After a tree was felled the real work began - a week or more to cut it up... 



Maneuvering the logs down the mountain to the train was a complex job... 


Some of the logs were larger than the train engine... 

A hollowed out log became the company's mobile office... 

Hollowed out logs were also used to house and feed the crews...
