Photo: crew in logging camp in 1905

Loggers outside a shanty in 1905, probably around Matagamasi Lake. The photo was taken by a Camp Temagami camper, whose first name is unknown, on a canoe trip. It must have been an exciting encounter as it was unusual to run into an active logging camp in the summer this was the era of winter logging. The crew may have been late driving logs from the cut to the sawmill for summer milling. Courtesy of Temagami Station Trust
