Re: More Photos from the Erie Lackawanna web site
I would have guessed wooden boxes/crates. Although corrugated boxes were certainly in use by 1919, I don't think they had completely supplanted wood in the shipping business.

I find the lading of interest here. I don't see how to determine if this is the loading point
or the unloading point. A lot of wood cut to a rather specific size but being allowed to
weather. I'm thinking these could be an early step towards barrel staves. Other thoughts?
