1940’s Movie of Logging and Sawmill Operation in America – “Redwood Saga”

When I was at Sturgeon’s Mill (see last blog) I overheard a man tell another that there was a very good YouTube video of Logging on the West Coast. Being the persistent auditor that I was I ploughed through some pretty dreadful movies till I found this one to which the gentleman at Sturgeon’s Mill may have been referring.

The movie is about 10 minutes long. I can’t identify where the shots come from but the movie could easily have been shot along the Mendocino Coast.

I was very pleased to note that our layout re-creates most of the aspects of logging shown in the movie.
