Richard:  Marvelous photos, thanks for sharing! 

 

The FGEX at that time was owned by Armour.  The white residue on the truck journals, would that be from the ice drainage spouts?  What is that big pipe over the door?  Likely a vent feature?  The end pictures show the wood boards with the v grove slots.
