For some reason I don't see those cardboard boxes anymore.

Just to be clear, the cardboard pieces were individual,flat,
pallet sized sheets. Picture a pallet with three or four levels of paper
towels or toilet or somesuch with a cardboard sheet between each level.

We used to staple those cardboard squares (heavy tagboard, really) to the inner walls
of railroad boxcars to protect the bags of cornstarch we were loading.
