    Thanks Scott, some interesting stuff there!

    Now I've got another line to research - when did multi-layer paper bags start to supplant barrels?

      I know grain sacks went from cloth to paper during or not long after WWII. I think that was also the timeframe of the main shift from wood boxes/crates/barrels to cardboard boxes and drums for dry materials.

        Marcus,

        If I recall, you are modeling in the 1904 time frame. Based on what information I have come across, I think barrels are your best bet.

        Some of these publications mention barrels/kegs.

        Scott
