Inscription.  
Two Sawmills were built at Fullerton, the timber & board mill. The timber mill produced large framing timbers & the board mill produced boards of various sizes. Both sawmills were build entirely of steel, iron, & concrete, no wood or other combustible materials were used in the construction. The timber mill had three double cutting band saws & the board mill had two double cutting bands & an 8' horizontal re-saw. Electric power was furnished by two 2,500 horsepower engines, & twelve high pressure 72”x18' boilers furnished the steam. The electrical plant was located between the two mills (see bottom left photo) & furnished power to the mill, the town, & the residential areas of Fullerton. Power was provided 24 hours a day to the residential areas, which was uncommon for the time.
