Shorpy Saturday – I’m a Lumberjack: 1899

By Jeffrey Buck

I tend to associate loggers with cold weather. The flannel shirts and jeans I suppose don’t help. As you may know the Upper Peninsula is home to a vast forest. Although much time has past since 1899 we still use wood in several everyday tasks. Logger’s equipment has evolved but they still seem to resemble the generations that came before them.

Take a look at the photograph entitled “I’m a Lumberjack: 1899“:

Upper Michigan circa 1899. “The loggers.” 8×10 inch dry plate glass negative, Detroit Publishing Company.
