Seno Skyring, Magallanes
Sawmill at Estancia Segundo Salto de Invierno, c1935
As local woodlands were progressively exhausted, supplies
for Punta Arenas had to be brought from ever-greater distances. This sawmill
was located on the edge of undeveloped forest, and adjacent to the sea for
ease of transport. Not suprisingly, the main construction material is wood.
