Courtesy of the Vintage Portland website ( here is a 1935 photo of several PFE refrigerator cars parked at Pacific Fruit & Produce Company in Portland, OR. Pacific Fruit was located at SE 2nd Avenue and SE Alder Street.

This company was a Sunkist distributor and the facility previously was operated by Bell &

Company, the oldest and best known of the fruit and vegetable jobbing concerns in Portland.


Click on the photo to enlarge it. I can’t quite identify the car numbers.


The building is still there but everything else in the picture is long gone. The tracks in the street appear to be paved over or removed. Alder Street is now Alder Avenue.
