A typical lumber camp of the late 1800's (1875-1900) accommodated sixty to one hundred men. Typically there could be five or six main buildings, all made of logs. A bunkhouse, a cook shanty, a barn, and a black smith shop. A camp office and store would also be among the buildings. The camp office and store typically included living quarters for the camp foreman and log scaler.
So looking at how things were back then, and watching these guys now, what a difference! They didn't have the heavy machinery we have today that can do so much of the heavy work back then. What's interesting too, is they found out I was a writer and they started asking me if we, as romance/western/americana authors write much about loggers. I said I knew of a few books, one in particular that came to mind. Sharla Rae's How to Fell a Timberman. Though I'm sure there are others out there. Now I guess I'll have to write one!
