Banjo In A Lumber Camp - photograph


BANJO, PEAVEYS AND RIFLES - "Pose with the prop of your choice". This picture shows the crew of a Bruce County lumber camp gathered in front of the camboose. I'd guess about 1910-20. The guy in the middle is the proud owner not only of the best hat in the camp but a five-string banjo! Interestingly, there's also a bicycle on the left hand side of the picture. Who used that - and why?
