During the early days of Algonquin Park's history, and to this day for that matter, logging has been a key industry in the park. Tom Thomson chronicled this activity in many sketches and actually followed the log drives down the rivers in the spring to document the action. In this piece, you can see two workers on top of the dam. Notice how Thomson used the logs in the foreground to push the viewers eye toward those workers and dam itself.
