Title: Missouri Pinewoods Logging and Forestation Scrapbook
Extent: 1 scrapbook
Location note: Vault -- vertical files
Abstract: Scrapbook of photographs of logging operations in the pinewood forests of Missouri.
Scope and Content note: This scrapbook, a gift to Mary Hinchey by cousin A. H. Hinchey, contains annotated photographs of logging operations in the Ozark Mountains pinewoods of Missouri. Photographs show the loggers themselves, skidways filled with felled trees, the rail operation to move the lumber from the camps (including an accident), the waterways of the Missouri pinewoods, camp offices, lumber mills, and other aspects of the lumber work-life.
Tipped into the scrapbook is a small photographic souvenir booklet from 1906 showing logging operation.
