You think you hate to make dinner? Imagine providing more than 8,000 calorie meals for a team of hungry loggers!

PHOTO AND RESEARCH BY JOHN KLATT OF OLD OREGON PHOTOS, WWW.OLDOREGONPHOTOS.COM - A logging camp cook shack — circa 1898: Pies are on the table of an early cook shack in this rare indoor photo, taken using only natural light. While basic (note the wood stacked beneath the table), the kitchen was essential for preparing food for the hungry loggers who burned as much as 8,000 calories during their 10-hour workdays. It appears the two old hands on the right are hoping to train their replacements. This image is by early photographer John F. Ford, who worked along both sides of the lower Columbia River, as well as in Portland.
