Mahogany boomed, British Honduras long ago
Typically within the rainy season, logs were floated down stream, where they were stopped at a 'Boom'-this is the place where huge chains stretched across the river to stop the logs from floating out to sea. Here companies would separate their logs which had been stamped with the company's logo or owners initials.
