Logging On
PHOTO: LIBRARY OF CONGRESS
To show off Michigan's forest industry at the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition, lumberjacks from the Great Lakes State cut and stacked 145 tons of white pine logs on the sled shown here. The timber formed part of the Michigan's Loggers' Camp exhibit, which included a 20-by-70-foot log cabin staffed by real lumberjacks who were shown chowing down on their diet of pork and beans, johnnycake, and black coffee. Besides a sleigh displaying the 18-foot-long logs, the camp included a 200-by-125-foot sawmill and various other tools for cutting, shaping, and transporting wood from the forest to mills.
