The timber getters

A previous post, Harvesting redwood trees, showed a video of lumberjacks at work before the advent of the chainsaw. Above is a video from the same period showing timber getters, the Australian equivalent of lumberjacks, at work. There is also detail about the little camps set up where the wives and kids could live nearby the worksite along with the workers themselves.
