Anyone have an educated guess as to where this photo was taken?


The location is somewhere in Arizona. Clues are the Crystal Ice House and the Standard Oil Company building.


Notice the car number stenciling on the refrigerator car ice hatch cover. There also appears to be a number stenciled on the ventilator hood of the reefer off to the far right...if that is in fact a reefer and a ventilator hood.


I think it's Glendale AZ. The reefer is a Santa Fe reefer (SFRD) and the Glendale Arizona Historical Society has a picture in it's online history of the Crystal Ice and Cold Storage Company building that matches the one in your photo.
