A Geometric Image of the Log Train found in Trout Lake, Michigan. During the depression, the logging industry was was filled with young men from relief families who signed up for six-month tours in one of the state's 50 Civilian Conservation Corps camps in rural areas. They were paid five dollars a month, plus room, board, clothing and medical care, while their families received $25 a month. Railroads have been vital in the history of the population and trade of rough and finished goods in the state of Michigan.
