Re: Carstens reefer

Here is a link to the 1913 Seattle Car and Foundry catalog. You can download
a pdf in the menu box to the left. Go to page 47 to see Carstens reefer 108
in their White Swan Shortening paint scheme. The description states ice
bunkers in the ends. On page 48 is what appears to be an identical car for
Frye & Company (an early meat packer in Seattle), which states the doors are
located at diagonal corners with ice bunker in the ends.
