West Coast Logging, Vancouver Island 1939. Dir. Colin Browne, Dir. Karl Spreitz, Photo. Phil LeMare, Photo. Gerry Wellburn, Nar. Gerry Wellburn, 1975. 16mm film. V2011:04/020.02.
“The scenes include a few brief views of Duncan on Vancouver Island in the early days, falling giant Douglas Fir with new chainsaws, bucking them into portable lengths, and the transportation of the logs by truck and railway. Good scenes at the base of the spar tree where the logs are being yarded out of the bush, tongs thrown about them with great skill, and the massive trunks lifted onto the rail cars by a steam donkey. Logs are loaded onto trucks by a gasoline donkey. There are scenes around the mill showing the arrival of the logs, the endless chain up onto the deck, the carriage which carries the logs through the circular saw, the edger, and all mill operations, including sorting in the lumber yard. A steam crane is shown working in the yard lifting and piling huge loads of lumber. A truck drives under the sawdust hopper and is loaded with sawdust which will be delivered to houses for stove fuel. And trucks leave the mill loaded with cut lumber. Also shown is an
excellent tree-topping sequence with a high-rigger.” (Colin Browne)
