Starting the Woodpile

Starting the Woodpile
Made by Light Collector
During the winter, my Uncle Bill hauled logs out of his bush lot and kept busy cutting and splitting them for firewood. When we went down fo the summer, we were put to work moving the resulting woodpile into the woodshed. The small limbwood went into the shed just outside the summer kitchen to be used for starting the fire in the cookstove. The larger chunks went to the shed beside the workshop. In this photo you see (L to R) yours truly, my friend from home, Peter Skanning and my brother Jim. If you look closely, you will see that Peter is working in his bare feet. He was always doing wierd stuff like that. Here we are loading the wheelbarrow which was the hard way of getting the job done. Eventually, Bill let us use the tractor and a flat bed trailer. Scanned from a 35mm slide, dated July 1960

Here I am on the tractor with the lasy load of wood and an empty spot where the woodpile used to be. The wood was destined for the woodshed, the leantoo to the right of the building behind the trailer. I could never understand why my uncle didn't build the woodpile closer to the woodshed. But of course. that wouldn't keep us as busy and perhaps out of his hair! Scanned from a 35mm slide dated July 1960.
