SepiaSaturday December 7, 2013 edition

This week I thought I would feature a MAN in an apron. It is from the site of "Our Miramichi Heritage Photos".  Life was certainly challenging back in the '30's and '40's.  A man back then did not need a "man cave", he practically worked in one...LOL

 Below the picture was this write-up:



Miramichi River
c 1930
During the winter months, trees were felled in lumber camps that could lodge between 20 and 100 loggers. This group photo shows the various roles the men could have. There is a cook wearing a white apron; a man, probably the camp owner, in suit and tie; and loggers. The loggers would also go hunting in winter - hence the sporting guns.

Moving right along, since we are "in the season" I will include a picture of my sister, Dianne, and me in our Christmas aprons getting ready for Christmas Dinner in 2005.

 There are butlers on our aprons singing Fa La La La La....
Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays/Happy time off to all!!!  :)

  1. Nicely contrasting pictures; from a tough life many years ago to a jolly Christmas apron - and very fetching you and your sister look too.

  2. I sure hope those loggers were able to keep warm around good log fires, as it looks very very cold there. At least the cook should have been ok when he was cooking!

  3. Right on Jo, can't beat a woodstove for giving out a great heat in the winter!!

  4. The cook would have been a most valued member of the logging team. Your Christmas looked as if it was going to be fun.

  5. I had an old neighbor once who was in logging camps when he was younger; he said they were toasty warm all the time -- those log houses held the heat! Nice aprons, Rosie...

  6. It must have been a big job cooking for those loggers. I bet they consumed a lot of food.

  7. Must be very interesting to work in a cave too. Your Christmas aprons are pretty and fun.

  8. I dare not show this post to my sister -- she'll want us to get Christmas aprons! (They are cute though!)

  9. The loggers must have been so cold! But they look happy enough, and someone thought to line them up for a photo.

  10. For the sake of balance, it is good to see some men wearing aprons. I suppose there is a great tradition of such wear - going right the way back to the blacksmith's apron.
