[Alfred E. Booth : logging footage, early 1930s]

Out-takes? Unorganized black and white footage of logging and sawmilling, especially of Western Red Cedar -- apparently by the Capilano Timber Company in North Vancouver and vicinity, ca. early 1930s. Includes footage of: hand logging, felling of large trees, a high-rigger climbing and topping a spar tree, a steam donkey engine at work, yarding of logs, a logging railroad, log booming, sawmill operations, cutting of cedar shakes, sorting and stacking of lumber, sawmill yard vehicles, and the loading of logs and timbers onto a Japanese freighter on the (North Vancouver?) waterfront. Many of the shots show the presence of snow, and appear quite "contrasty".
