Content: 155C XIII-33 Cherry Valley T. Co. The first bunk houses had crude wooden shelves built around the cabin one tier above another. Nowadays the bunks are made from iron frame bedsteads, some two-decker, some three. Similar bunk arrangements may be found in college fraternity houses. Our picture shows a modern bunk house interior.
