This stereograph features a large bundle of timber, chained together and floating on the water. Three men are standing on the logs in the forefront while a number of people can be seen standing on the logs in the distance. Trees are seen to the right of the logs and water is seen to the left. The publisher's name is printed on either end of the images and the title of the images and the copyright are printed along the bottom right edge. The back of the stereograph provides a brief history of this form of lumber transportation.
