Laborers pose for group photo at Guilford Lumber Company camp.

One of the first manufacturers utilizing forest products on a large scale was Guilford Lumber Company, makers of box shooks (the sides of wooden boxes, popular in the days before corrugated boxes), doors, and dimension lumber. Guilford Lumber Company became Guilford Manufacturing Co., and in 1920 was purchased by Lloyd Cartwright, doing business as the Minto Toothpick and Specialty Company.
