Not sure which arrangement you're talking about, but there are boat houses (for recreational boats) to the left and to the right are places where log rafts are kept before the logs go to saw mills.

Well, my first thought about this spectacular photo was "Wow, a snap-track layout!"  Well, not quite, the radii are larger than even 22", but I also would like to know what is that arrangement on the opposite side of the river all about?

Jeff Helm pointed out this SPECTACULAR industrial photo from the 1960's but the Hooker Chemical plant here was built in the 1940's and lasted through the 1990's (at least that long) so I thought it is worth sharing around. If my stupid mail program truncates the long URL you'll have to paste it back together to see it in your browser. :-\:-)
