0523.0059: Logger holding a Pike Pole standing on the log pond at Mineral Lake.

Logger holding a Pike Pole standing on the log pond. In lumbering they are used to control logs floating on a river in a log drive and constructing log rafts. Pike poles used in log rafting were originally made of wood, typically spruce or fir. In the mid-1960s they began to be made of aluminum tubing plugged with a wooden knob to maintain buoyancy. Specialized logging tools of similar appearance are peavey and cant hook. Can anyone help identify this logger?
