Unloading sap at Forest Home sugarbush in Harrisville

Merton Mantle and Myron Humes unloading the sap tub, which is on a sledge. The trough at bottom right was used to run sap from the tub to the boiling pan (or holding container) so the tub could be taken back out to the sugar bush for another load of sap. This photo was taken at Warren Humes’ sugar camp, where Merton was the hired man. Circa 1910. Harrisville, NY.
