Logging Before Chain Saws

I love old photos like this. Can you believe the size of those logs? All cut by hand in the era before power equipment. True man power! It must have been very dangerous too. How did they tie down the logs? How did they get such perfect measurements?

Oh dear. My only thought is for the horses.
Hopefully, that photo has been enhanced and pulling such a massive load was never intended. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. ;-)
