[Southern Pine Lumber Company Slip Tongue Log Skidder and Team]

Date: 1903
Creator: American Lumberman
Description: Photograph of a high-wheeled, slip-tongue log skidder with its teams and driver. The driver would straddle the cart over felled logs, where dangling tongs would be positioned to raise the end of a log off the ground when the mules pulled the tongue forward, allowing the log to "skid" along under the cart's rolling wheels.
