Black and white photograph of two unidentified men holding shovels, pausing from digging stacks of pulp wood out from under thigh deep snow. The man on the left stands beside a stump with a grove around the circumfrence that is possibly a snubbing post. The slope in background appears clear cut, ca. 1920 – 1930. Back matter: “Man at [proper] right stands near snubbing post on which a big rope has been used.” Location is unidentified. Donated by Sarah “Sadie” Augusta French Lee, aka Mrs. Lyman K. Lee of Dover-Foxcroft, Maine.
