Pulpwood Logging

A close-up of one of the wonderful dioramas at the Louisiana State Exhibit Museum (LSEM) in Shreveport. Shows an early (1930's?) logging operation in a stand of loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.). The workers are loading pulpwood (for paper) on the truck and five sawlogs have been stacked by the road. Amazing amount of detail here. [NOTE: There are 22 dioramas in the musuem, each depicting some aspect of Louisiana’s agriculture, technology, and natural resources during the Depression era. The displays were produced by a team of local artists and model builders under the direction of diorama artist, Henry B. White].

Looks lovely. Did you ever see the Thorne Miniature Rooms at the Art Institute of Chicago? Also astonishing.

Not yet. LSEM has several wonderful, extremely detailed dioramas of the development of the Rodessa oil field in northern Louisiana. Which is what essentially made the state. They say "Louisiana without oil–is Mississippi".
