The hand-cranked ferry across the river at Boom, so-called because that is where the log boom was located.

Second photo: Thatís probably George Priceís Land Rover in the rear of the photograph. He frequented Burrell Boom a lot because his chauffeur Jimmy Loco was a native of Burrell Boom. There would be someone selling roasted cashew nuts on the ferry; nice and fresh! The first vehicle was a Morris Minor van.

Rosa Chi: As a girl I crossed there a lot to live in Big Falls. One day the truck we were on in went into the river with us, that was scary but thank god I was still alive!
