As to the boxcars lined up at the plant, would anyone hazard a guess as to whether these brought parts in, were ready to receive finished automobiles or were in dual service?

 

Also notice the apparent game of craps in the foreground.

 

By the way, there are many railroad photographs on the Huntington Library site.
