This photo, donated by Chuck Peterson, shows clearly what a logging chute looked like—made from two logs flattened on top and laid side by side. Chutes were greased with a stick or broom handle so horses could easily move the logs down it.
This photo of a logging flume shows one way of transporting logs, on water in a wooden trough or flume.
This Norman Doolittle photo shows one man, tentatively identified as Howard H. Peterson, fastening binders on a load of logs, and the other man, identified as Marion Boyd, looking on. Railroad tracks are visible, and another loaded logging truck is behind it.
Photo shows how labor intensive old-time logging was. No mechanization to do the work of moving that big log. It was manpower, or horses only, in the old days.
