This presentation recalls and celebrates NL’s rich history of lumbering and logging as told through the songs, tunes, stories, and photos of our early woods workers.
Drawing on archival and new recordings, and including live performances by a local actor and musician, this presentation will highlight various aspects of woods culture on the island and in Labrador, including cutting, felling and driving, camp conditions and life, the IWA strike, the role of women, and wartime forestry service.
