We have come a long way

As my label states, I have gone out on a limb, if you will pardon the pun.  I guess what I am trying to convey is that these men had to use their physical strength to move things where as the men of the shuttle era literally just pushed buttons and it got them straight to the moon and back.  These men on a log jam seems so far away from that era, but really weren't.  We haved moved by leaps and bounds in just a short time when we think about it.  This picture is from the collection of Charles Asoyuf "Old Pictures of the Miramichi" on Facebook. Enjoy more pictures by going to SepiaSaturday.blogspot.com.  Blogger is still not letting me comment after I leave an entry on Sepia Saturday, very frustrating.....

  1. I hope no one pushes a button to release the logs halfway down the waterfall. The men seem so relaxed but appear to be in a dangerous position.

  2. I have no idea why Blogger is preventing you from commenting - very mysterious. I suppose, the surprising thing is how short a period of time (relatively speaking) there is between the men in that log-jam and the space shuttle astronauts who have just landed. Great link, and a great picture.

  3. Blogger has problems. There are times when people can't comment on my blog, and then it happens that I cannot comment on theirs. Fortunately, this hasn't happened to me for a few weeks now and I certainly hope you will get the same break. Very interesting post. They were very, very brave men back in those days.

  4. I have noticed that sometimes I get signed out when I go to comment. Then I have to sign in again.

  5. It looks like very dangerous work. Alan is right, a long way in a short time indeed.

  6. Do you suppose bloggers are putting loggers out of business? Nice picture!

  7. Great photo. I can't even imagine what back-breaking work that was.

  8. Great photo! It's amazing how quickly things changed and continue to change at an ever-accelerating pace! Don't know that I'd want to be standing on top of all those logs like they are, but I'm sure they knew what they were doing.

  10. A real log jam! So often I forget the original meanings of words and phrases like that.
