In the Days of the River Boats (1981)

Digitized from a VHS copy of a National Film Board 1981 short film "In the Days of the River Boats" on transportation in the Yukon during the early days of the 20th century depicting a part of Canadian history few know.

The footage for this short film was taken in the 1930s.

This film refers to "Wooding up". Specifically every 50 miles the fuel would be propositioned on the bank of the river. The crew would have to setup a ramp and transfer all the wood by hand.
