These previously unpublished photographs are gathered from private family archives and used with the permission of the owners. They are of the people living and working in the Oconto County, Wisconsin,  lumbering industry. They give a small idea of life in those times - 1823 to 1920. Perhaps you will recognize your ancestors among them.
