This collection contains a small number of images for which we don't have much information, such as the name of the contributor or how they came to the Museum, or for some other reason they don't fit into the other collections. Some come from published sources we hold for reference purposes.
Image is of two men standing next to a cross-cut saw embedded in a log sitting atop a sawbuck with several cut lengths of firewood on the ground. Several boys are behind them, two holding axes. They all stand between two rows of colony tents with clothes hanging on lines behind them and trees beyond.
