(Photo supplied by the National Historic Cheesemaking Center)
Pictured are employees of the Carl Marty Company, constructing Swiss cheese tubs. The tubs were used for transporting and shipping wheel Swiss cheese. Constructed of basswood, staves were held in place by steel strapping and would usually hold four wheels and were occasionally constructed to hold a single wheel.
