Here is a Kinsey shot taken around 1920. You have to look closely to see the logger. He probably wouldn’t get high marks from OSHA today, but it definitely looks exciting.
The photo is entitled High Lead. High lead logging, a method of cable logging, was pretty common during that time. In fact, you can see the cables strung to the top of the tree. If you’d like to read more about high lead logging, just click here.
