Landscape oriented black and white photograph postcard depicting the the use of a springboard in cutting timbers. Three men stand by a large tree that is to the right of the center of the photo. There are two men to the left (unidentified) and 1 to the right (Henry D. West). Two men have their hands on the saw and the third (the one in the center) is holding an axe leaned against the tree. In the foreground there are many large splinters of wood and in the background there are many smaller trees and what appears to be a steep hill.
