This hand truck was used to transport tobacco around the auction warehouse. By placing the tobacco on sheets and in baskets, the tobacco could be loaded onto these metal trucks. The hand truck worked as a low, shallow wheelbarrow, with handles on the front and wheels on the bottom for easy movement. The hand trucks were an easy way to transport tobacco carefully and effectively. Date approximated. The accompanying video describes its use.
