Logs in the boom at Mistake Lake, 1909

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Fisher 15/3071

Scope and Contents

Quarter-plate (landscape format). The boom is a line of chained logs arranged to enclose a space of water, in which the mass of logs may be confined and directed. The logs in these views are of mixed kinds : about equal quantities of pine, spruce and hemlock. It would be safe to say that anything with rough bark on in these views is hemlock, with smooth bark spruce.


  • Creation: 1909
