Sawmill site near Immervoulin, Strathyre


Photograph courtesy of William Fleming, Polmont who worked in Strathyre Forest as an apprentice Forest Craftsman and retrieved this image from an unknown local magazine.

Fred Menzie and Bill Dye having a piece break outside a sawmill site at Immervoulin round about 1950. The logs stacked behind the men look like hardwoods perhaps some are birch but the speckle of snow may be creating that impression.
Bill Dye worked in the Forestry (Commission?) for forty four years and retired to Strathyre.

Note the ex-army piece bags, two flasks and just in view the tin or aluminium piece box.

Any more details and also name of original photographer would be very welcome.
