Hauling Firewood



Today's picture shows a man gathering a wagonload of logs for firewood. I would imagine he has about a cord of wood, which would probably heat his cabin for the winter. It looks like he is using mules to pull the wagon. The picture was taken in 1936 in La Forge, Missouri.

    1. A cord of wood contains 128 cubic feet, a peckup bed stacked 4 feet hihg would contain approximately 190 cubic feet, based on a full size bed which is roughly 8 feet long and 6 feet wide.
