Black and white photograph of the interior of the bunk house of a logging operation, ca. 1880-1920. A small wood stove sits in the foreground. Split stove wood sits in a pile beside the stove. In the background is the row of upper and lower bunks. Lower bunks appear to be pallets spread on the plank floor. "Muzzle leaders", dirty socks, and hobnail boots hand from the rafters near the stove. Location is unidentified. Donated by Sarah “Sadie” Augusta French Lee, aka Mrs. Lyman K. Lee of Dover-Foxcroft, Maine.
