Right now, in the OIC, we are discussing the book distributing and the book storage at the TSBD. Would you really stack boxes of books this high? On the right, that stack is 7 boxes high. I'm going to guess that each box is about 16 inches high. That would put the top box at 9 1/3 feet. It means that someone would have needed a ladder to place the top box. But, who would do that, and why? 

When I received my graphic novel in boxes, they told me never to stack them more than 3 boxes high because otherwise it would crush the books. And look how dangerous it would be to remove a box when it's up that high. 

We have not found a single box with legible writing to identify the books inside.

They were supposedly filling orders from schools. So, school-size orders. So, how could an "order-filler" gather up enough books for a school without a cart or dolly of some kind? But, all we ever heard about them having is a clipboard. 

The Texas School Book Depository was a private firm that distributed textbooks to schools in North Texas and Oklahoma from a non-descript 7-story, red-brick warehouse that had stood on the corner of Elm and Houston streets since 1901.
Accused assassin Lee Harvey Oswald began working at the depository as an order-filler on Oct. 15, just a few weeks before the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
"He worked principally on the first and sixth floors of the building, gathering books listed on orders and delivering them to the shipping room on the first floor."

So, you had all these "order-fillers" delivering school-size orders to a little shipping room on the first floor. Here's a map of the first floor:

I don't even see a shipping room. The biggest room on the right is Mr. Shelley's office. Below that, is Mr. Truly's office. Above it, one of those rooms was the domino room where they ate lunch and played dominoes, and another was the toilet. On the left, you can see the two elevators, and there are the stairs in the northwest corner. So, which one of those little rooms was the shipping room? And how could you have all these order-fillers going there with their loads where you had one guy, Troy Eugene West, who was THE shipping wrapper, taking care of all those orders from all those order-fillers? How could he possibly do that, and how could there possibly be room for it?

William Weston in The Spider's Web maintained that the TSBD was really a CIA front company involved in spying and smuggling and surveillance under the guise of school book distribution. It looks to me like he was right.
