Re: Steel Banding for Rough Cut lumber Loads

Because finished lumber was normally shipped in boxcars in that era, to 1) keep it clean, 2) keep it dry, 3) keep rust stains from forming under the bands. This changed when they started to wrap the bundles before banding them, but this wasn't until the late sixties.
