Hoyt Lumber in Upland closed last weekend after it and its predecessor, Rugg Lumber, had been in business at that location since 1929. My colleague Sandra Emerson recently wrote about Hoyt’s closure.
I was curious about the two wooden figures on the facade. The story behind those can be found in my Wednesday column. Above is the overall view; at immediate right is the figure to the right of the sign, who’s holding a hand saw; at far right is the figure to the left of the sign, who carries an electric saw.

And feel free to leave comments about the business or the figures.
