Here is a picture about the A.F Anderson LumberYard So Boardman Michigan early 1900. I believe the writing on the photo states 59,000 Bd Ft of wood.
Note the boards that stick-out so you can climb up the stack and have workers stand on them as they pass wood up to the top of the stack.
It states that this pile is 35 ft high.
The saw mill.
The Best team in the woods.
Here’s another picture of the step boards.
