Lumber Camps at turn of the Century

Not exactly The Savoy's kitchen!  This would be  a typical kitchen in a lumber camp in New Brunswick at the turn of the century.  It must have been quite a feat to feed so many mouths with the equipment they possessed at the time.

I can't make out if this is breakfast or supper.  Lunch would have been a bagged lunch eaten where they were felling the trees.  I am not too sure of the expression of the first man with light hair, I don't think he looks like he is enjoying the food or maybe he didn't want to be disturbed so he could get on with eating, no doubt these men had quite the appetite!!  Visit other interesting posts at http://sepiasaturday.blogspot.com

  1. They seem none too happy about being disturbed at their meal!

  2. Rather cramped conditions, making it a little ‘cosy’.

  3. They look a pretty rough bunch - not sure I would like to get too cosy with that lot.

  4. Interesting looking characters. I also wonder how the food was produced back then, thinking of the poor equipment they had compared with what we have now.

  5. @Marilyn---and no dishwasher---it must have taken a long time to do dishes and pots and pans!

  6. Whatever they fed the men it was most likely hearty and something that could stick to their ribs in the hard work of the day. Lots of food went through there.

  7. A tough lot maybe but at least some part their hair neatly. It's looks as if they would never starve - try counting the dishes on the tables.

  8. I've never seen such loaded tables! But I've no doubt they burned off all those calories in their line of work.
