Re: Loading Box Shook

In the far distant past ( about 1953, 54) I worked a couple of summers in a packing house (pears, not citrus) and helped unload some carloads of box shook. The box cars were loaded to the top of the doors and tight up against the doors. As I recall it was quite hard to get the doors open because the shook was so tight against the doors. The box making machines were in the basement and the shook was moved to the basement down a chute.
