Bringing lunch to loggers, ca. 1907-1928

Loggers in Newfoundland and Labrador often had to bring their own lunches into the woods, but sometimes the camp cook or his assistants delivered a midday meal to the men. Although there was plenty of food at logging camps, there was not much variety. Beans were usually served at both breakfast and lunch, and other staples included bread, fish, salt beef or pork, pea soup, porridge, and tea.
