In the 19th century, lumber was marked to identify which company it belonged to before being sent downstream to the mills. The 'H' we see here is suspected to belong to the Hamilton Brothers, an early 19th century lumber operation in the Ottawa Valley. The large 'H' was cut using a broad axe, and the smaller with a marking hammer.
The prints are created using the actual log end pulled from the bottom of the Ottawa River and are available in incredibly limited quantities.
