Sepia tone photograph of a loaded two sled with a pair of horses stopped in a farm yard located on West Old Town Road. The farm buildings in the background show a typical "Big house, Little house, Back house, Barn" connected building configuration. The landscape is snow-covered. An unidentified man is seated at the front of the load to drive. He holds the reins and appears to be preparing to depart. A man standing on the ground beside the sled is wearing a hat and has his hands in his pockets as he looks toward the back end of the load where a young child is seated at the very end of a log protruding from the load. The child looks at the camera. In the foreground, the front-end of a sled and poles can been seen. Caption written on the back of the image, “Hauling logs to the mill at West Old Town, Me., 1918.” Original image donated by Mrs. Lewis K. Miller of Argyle, Maine. Accessioned 1958.
