Black and white photograph of Duke McKeil standing in front of the door of a stockade-style log woods camp identified as the office for Steve Ranny's Number 2 camp on Boardman Mountain. McKeil is dressed in wood pants, a buffalo-plaid wool shirt, and a brimmed apple cap (or newsboy cap). An evergreen forest can be seen in the background, ca. 1910-1930. Stockade-style refers to the cabin's construction with cut logs, placed side-by-side, vertically (on end), rather than laid in horizontal courses. The peak of the cabin may be constructed of sawn lumber and is closed in using tar paper. The cabin is fitted with two, six-pane windows hung side-by-side. Deep snow surrounds the cabin. Back matter: Steve Ranney’s No. 2 camp Boardman Mt. E. Br. Pleasant River. Office. Duke McKeil, Bess.” Donated by Sarah “Sadie” Augusta French Lee, aka Mrs. Lyman K. Lee of Dover-Foxcroft, Maine.
