Timber: Toil and Trouble in the Big Woods
Has anyone today any conception of the grandeur, the extent, the million board feet a day production...the entire meaning of the forests of the Pacific Northwest-the "Big Woods"? The photographs alone in this absorbing book will instantly transport the reader into this former world. Here was the greatest stand of Douglas fir timber in existence and here was labor for the Poles, Finns, Swedes and Norskies lured out of the Midwest to convert the mammoth trees into the lumber that helped build the West Coast cities. Ralph Andrews presents a fascinating subject-the hope, courage and tragedy in the lives of the men and women who opened up the dense native forests or as the loggers said "brought daylight into the swamp," and converted the trees into the lumber which built the West Coast cities. Here are many nostalgic scenes showing high climbers, fallers balanced on high springboards, yokes of oxen and up to eight spans of horses dragging logs on skidroad, yokes of oxen and up to eight spans of horses dragging logs on skidroads to flumes, rivers and salt water, early donkey engines, railroads on steep grades, logging camps as well as devastating fires. Andrews' style of writing is graphic and spirited with strong emphasis on human interest.

Taken from Brisbane Water Drive between Woy Woy and Park's Bay.

Left to right: Pines at the Memorial Park on the foreshore.
Pelican Island in front of the pines.
Light at the footy oval.
The fish & chip shop on the foreshore where they do the pelican feeding.
Possibly the former 'Roma' boarding house circa 1891. The elaborate plaster ceiling and the general style of the building certainly fit.
CWA (low, grey roof).
Old Woy Woy pub, 1897 (behind CWA).
Some old shops.
The sticking up thing is a crane or something on an oyster boat or dredger.
Behind it you can just see the Bay View Hotel, built in 1929.
At the end of the road are some more old shops on Railway Street opposite the station, which is behind the trees on the far right.

Timber
Featuring limited edition packaging in a real wooden box with heat stamped cover design, Timber is composed by Michael Gordon, co-founder of Bang on a Can and Cantaloupe Music. Timber is an evening-length tour de force. Scored for six graduated wooden Simantras percussion instruments devised by French composer Iannis Xenakis the work brings the physicality, endurance and technique of percussion performance to a new level. In this new work, Gordon shapes the music in both polyrhythmic and dynamic waves of textures often each players' hands are in separate rhythmic 'worlds', each traversing a different dynamic contour from loud to soft to loud, similar in some respects to his solo for percussion, XY.
