The Large and Small Logs

This photos entitled The Lage and Small Logs is somewhat haunting.

You rarely see women in the woods, especially not with a child and her doll. There are a lot of other details in this photo that are work checking out, like pin holding the logs in the rail car, the butts of the trees that show how the men hacked into the tree with sawing.
