pioneer bushmen.

Caption

A fine example of the skill and ability of the pioneer bushmen long before the appearance of the chainsaw and bulldozer, note how the bark has been removed by the axeman for the two, or in this case, three man saw cut.  Note also the leather strap which the elder man used to pull on the handle of the saw in unison with the younger man.  The single man on the other end of the saw would only draw the saw back after each cut.  Note the precarious staging used to reach the top half of the cut.
