I can't find an existing thread to which to attach this.  I'm not sure how it got to my computer.  Normally I include the source in the file name.

The lengths and sizes of the timbers are a little mystifying?....best guess of say 3' and 4' long planks, then 8" x 10" x 3' long blocks?

The timber species doesn't appear to be a rough sawn hard wood, too smooth, uniform [not bent/bowed] & lighter in colour?  :whistle

I'll take a guess & say the wood pile of pieces is the boiler fuel?

Walter Snowdon:
Hi Roderick. Could the timber piles be for making boxes?. If you look at the piles of crates they are about the same shape and size. Regards, Walter

derekwarner_decoy:
Yes Walter....maybe my 3" is a little oversize :nono , and maybe they made box's from thick timber

I think box timber [or the like] is the correct answer  :clap
