Inscription.  Before the 1950's the planer mill, sawmill and warehouses were connected by a series of wooden tramways. These lumber carts were used to transport rough and unfinished lumber and molding between the buildings. Some of the carts were pushed by hand, while others were moved by home-made power machines called jitneys.
