Description
This is a black and white photo of a steam driven tractor pulling a series of loaded logging skids. The tractor is a Lombard Steam Log Hauler.
Notes
The Lombard Steam Log Hauler as it was officially known looked and operated much like a small steam locomotive. It had an engineer and fireman that maintained the boiler pressure and controlled the speed of the engine, but was steered by a man sitting in front of the boiler. The Pine Lumber Co. of Devon (near Chapleau) c1917, was one of the few Ontario locations where a Lombard was known to have been used. The proprietors of the Devon mill were from the Lotbiniere area of Quebec and Lombards were produced in Maine.
