Evaporators and collection buckets at the Horseshoe Forestry Company in Piercefield

The interior of one of the Horseshoe Forestry Company’s sugar houses with metal walls and marble or stone floor. Four maple syrup evaporators at front, several men at two of the evaporators in the background. Metal arches with sheet metal smoke stacks coming from the back.  Evaporator pans on the arches with sap collecting buckets to far left.  A large pipe suspended from sidewall with braces spans the front of all evaporators, possibly piping sap into pans.  Photograph by George.
