Alright. I went too far back in the "Way Back Machine".
Let's talk about, post 1940.

Negative, the Semet-Solvay Company goes back to the 1890s with their recovery coke ovens going into business in the early 1900s . . . . and there where merged into what became the Allied Chemical Co in 1920.

Subject: [STMFC] Semet-Solvay-Allied Chemical history?

It is my understanding that Semet-Solvay was always a part of Allied
Chemical, even though the Semt-Solvay tankcars, as delivered, had no
markings to show Allied Chemical affiliation.
I have a photo showing a Semet-Solvay car with a small Allied Chemical
rectangle herald of undetermined date and a later image of a tankcar
with a large Allied Chemical herald.
Can anyone help with rough dates as to when these markings were in use?
