Object Name Water Box
Description Water Box for sprinkler wagon. (Sprinkler Wagon with 2 sets of Runners, or bunks) It is unclear whether just the box was donated, or if the bunks/runners were on the box at that time. The water box is a large wooden box (almost 9 feet long x approx. 4 feet high) which held water, and was hauled by horses, used to sprinkle the logging roads to freeze them, to ice the ruts for the log sled. Held about 40 barrels of water.
The tongue for the water box probably came with accession 1956.043, which also mentions a waterbox pole, which might be on the waterbox too. An extra set of matching bunks, 2002.016.0004 (FIC) probably came in with 1956.043 also.
