  • Short Summary

    Timber is moved by means of an air line and by horse and cart.

  • Description

    Introductory intertitle reads: "Out in the wild and woody west they evidently had a man who had heard of strap-hanging - for he devised this method."

    High angle shot of men moving large logs around a lumber yard. C/U of two men in attaching a bundle of large logs to a pulley system with a chain. C/U of man tightening the clasp. The logs move away from the camera on the pulley system. Low angle shots of the logs moving along through the air. The logs are taking far down into the valley "a real air line..." reads the intertitle. Various shots of the logs being moved. The logs reach their destination. We then see the logs being transported by a different method - horses pull carts loaded up with timber.
