Log drive to the sawmill. This lovely old photo de­picts a pro­fes­sion, that of the log driver, that is long gone from our area. How­ever the photo is from a lo­cal col­lec­tion so some­one may re­mem­ber the scene or the lo­ca­tion and could share that in­for­ma­tion with us. We have a few names to share. For the pho­tos of the large stur­geon found on the shore of Lake Mas­saw­ippi; The fel­low with the round glasses was Ce­cil Tyler and the fel­low with him is Grant Ansell. In the Women''s In­sti­tute float photo, taken from their cal­en­dar, we are told the ladies from left to right are; Mrs. Shaw, Elden Lit­tle dressed as a man, _?_, Ruth Rin­toul, Janet Mclel­lan, Bess Mcvit­tie, Mrs. Low­ell, Mrs. Map­pin and Mrs. Wil­son. And some­where be­hind the stove was driver, Robert Lit­tle. Sadly the lady giv­ing us the names wished to re­main anony­mous. In the sec­ond stur­geon photo is Arthur Slack and Fred Fisher. Thanks to Robin Tyler and Wynn Dustin for the names.
