    ?? not quite sure what this is showing, but there's a lot of guys - including the one on the roof and a couple of women and children. I think it's a sawmill. i wish i could read the words on the crate - i bet there's info about where this is on it. what do you think?

      I think it may be a sawmill to make cedar shingles?? Looking at the bundles on the right.

      Early 19th Century steam powered sawmills made shingles easier to make!!!

      The roof looks like it was made of wood Shakes? Check it out on Wikipedia.

      We're at Myrtle beach on vacation, when the wind is just right you can smell the paper mill in Georgetown 36 miles away!! Maine has a few not as many as years ago!! One town was nicknamed Stinken Lincoln!! Doesn't have a mill now, but some people still call it that.
