SAPAWE & CROOKED PINE LAKE, ONTARIO

Crooked Pine Lake, Ontario : Lumber Camps, 1925-30.

Many thanks to for these photos. He says in part ". . . . My Grandfather (George Johnson) was from Port Arthur and had six logging and mill camps between Crooked Pine Lake and Atikokan. He was born in Port Arthur in 1895 and my mother was born there as well in 1923, and I think the photos were taken when she was about three or four. There are many boxes of single snapshots and I will review for ones that seem relevant as I have time. "
