If it is a hand drawn designation, the intent could have been 22LH5. If the
joist end depth is 5", it is probably an LH joist. If it is 2 1/2" depth,
then you are back to scratching your head.
I think that we need a few more clues:
About what year is the construction?
What geographic region is it?
Someone else already suggested getting the tag from the joists. I
have retrieved tags from joists by LaClede constructed in the 1950's.
