Photograph of a man with an ax standing on the base of a Redwood tree in Henry Cowell Park, ca.1900. A man wearing overalls and a hat can be seen standing above ground on an indentation on the side of a Redwood trunk. He is visible holding an axe in his extended right hand, while a sign reading "Young Men's Christian Association Group" can be seen on the tree to the left of the man. Multiple trunks extend from the same tree base, while foliage is visible in the background. Two wooden planks can be seen in the foreground.
