Railroad Nails with Dates
Until the1950s, railroad crews used nails with the year stamped on the nailhead. It's such a simple and useful way to pass on information for the future. Later crews can easily tell when something was built, when it was repaired, and how often it needed repair. And best of all, the information is right there as part of the structure, no manuals or paperwork to get lost. Design for the next guy.
