Where they lived


The Carlson Co. Before Chindahl was added? A fancy feast cooked in the brush on woodstoves.

Sifting through the photo collection we are able to identify a number of job sites. Alongside many of the construction zones are the camps. These folks were working in remote areas. Roads, electricity and water were not always handy.

There are similarities in the various camps; a wooden dining hall and cook shack with tar paper siding, and white wall tents with wooden floors. It is possible they packed the components from place to place and set up similar camps each time.

The cooking must have been a big job and we see the cook and flunkey in several shots. Flunkey was twice noted on the prints, and was a legitimate job description in the past.
