Felling Forest Giants (ca. 1920s)

This 20s film shows logging and lumber cutting practices in the Pacific Northwest, including the felling of giant redwoods. This is quite interesting from a historical perspective, since the film has a raw, rough quality that convinces you that you're seeing the real deal. Interest is added by showing some of the more esoteric parts of the lumberjack's job, such as shoeing the oxen, though their general treatment of the beasts might upset animal lovers. All in all, this is an interesting portrait of logging practices during the 20s.
