Hi Tom, well I finally got some pictures that I have been promising for awhile. These are of logging in Central Wisconsin, late 1800s. I have a couple of hundred photographs I am working with so, if anyone wants to see something, please let me know. I have seen tarpaper rooms with and without battens, some even have old tires thrown up on the roof to keep the paper in place. These particular photographs are from glass negatives.

Jim,

Thanks for the pictures.

I will finish painting a couple of resin bunk houses (thanks Les) and then I will start the root cellar.

Perhaps later I'll make some ceramic dishes [:-banghead]

Jim,

Thanks for posting the pictures, there is a lot of great details in there.

Tom, the saw filers shack looks great and will be a fine addition to your logging scene.

Jim, nice pics.
Those scraps they used for battens are eye catching.
The mess hall reminds me of the lounge.
Post more pictures if you don't mind.
Maybe start a separate thread for them.

As you think, so will you be.

Rick, You need to get to the lounge more, the last time I saw the lounge that clean was the day we opened it.

Seeing as I am planning a logging area on my layout, I wouldn't mind seeing more pictures too.

Just a building face as the remainder will be buried in a side hill.
