What was it like “working in the woods” in the late 1800’s?

If you check the website section on logging you won’t find even one picture  of loggers working in the woods. There were no iphones, polaroids, broownie cameras and precious 4 by 5’s using plates. So ANY photo of loggers in the woods are precious. Below is what I think is my “first” as historian of the MCMR&HS.
