Description

This is a slightly modified press photo. Image shows a cat tractor and men in foreground with some sort of sled structure behind the tractor. Other men are working at a sawmill under a shelter roof in near middle ground. A large pile of spruce logs is behind the mill and birch trees are on the hill beyond. Information with the photo indicates there are approximately 2,500 logs in the pile, enough to build 25 new Colony homes.
