Scope and Content
Photograph looking north along the Pole Line Road (later Sperling Avenue). To the far left is Deer Lake and at the top right is Burnaby Lake. The smoke and debris from land clearing is a result of logging operations being carried out by the Doran Brothers logging company, the Deer Lake Mill Company. Above Deer Lake, Douglas Road is visible with Claude Hill's Brookfield property (later 6501 Deer Lake Avenue) on the south side of the road and Bernard Hill's home on the north side (later 4990 Canada Way). Just northeast of Brookfield is the George Clayton farm (amongst the trees) on what would later become the Henry and Grace Ceperley estate grounds known as Fairacres. The house in the centre of the picture is the Walker house (later 5255 Sperling Avenue). Mountains can be seen to the north.

Notes
Title based on contents of photograph
An accompanying note prepared by Burnaby Village Museum reads: "Until the land was logged off and settlers moved in logging was carried on all over Burnaby. At first oxen and horse teams, up to 16 animals, laboured to move the felled trees, some of which measured 33' in circumference. Later, stationary steam engines or 'donkeys' were used to pull large timbers through the underbrush. Sometimes, if the logging company was big enough, several of these engines were placed at intervals in the forest so that logs could be from source to loading point. This picture was probably taken around 1900 and is quite likely showing part of the Gilley Brothers operation which logged on both the north and south slopes in Burnaby."
