Storyline

This picture depicts the lumber industry from the time the lumbermen go to work, to their well-earned repose when the day is at a close. The logs can be seen in enormous piles on the side of a hilly slope and by the application of dynamite, are sent thundering and crashing down the valley-side into the Kennebec River, like an avalanche or mountain slide that sweeps everything before it. The logs are carried by the rushing waters of the Kennebec, and at times congest in such a way that it takes weeks and weeks to break the jam, even with the use of mechanical devices provided for such emergencies. The logs are literally corralled by the lumbermen, who travel over the revolving surface like squirrels running a tread-mill. When this work is done the boom appears like a fair-sized island, this one in particular consisting of four million logs, each having a mark designating the mill to which it belongs.
