Cassels Lake log booms
This 1946 aerial photo, used to produce early maps, by chance caught three log booms waiting to be towed to the sawmill. The photo was probably taken in late spring or early summer. Logs were dumped on the lake over the winter. The upper-most boom is actually moored on its north end to an island. Sunrise Lake is just off to the southwest.
Gillies Bros. (one of the famed square-timber cutters in the 1800s) built a sawmill on Cassels the year before. It closed in 1957, but was not taken down for many years. It stood where the public landing is now.
