Hiding out

So are the three guys on the roof scared of the lumber or the children?

Marquette at 150

Mentioned in this document about Marquette's Sesquicentennial are several sawmills. Difficult telling which one is depicted in the photo.

Closer Look

With my eyes I thought the three guys on the roof were some sort of vents or steam pipes until I enlarged the image. Then I spotted the three children who look like they're dressed up for Easter. Strange place for them to be, I'd assume a lot could go wrong during the work that is done there.

Alternate Title

The River Sticks.
