In later years, after the produce traffic died off, they were used in general service to haul most anything. 

I have a photo in my collection of one stenciled "For Pulpwood Loading Only" 

Labor was cheap :-)

  What was shipped in "Ventilated Box Cars" - the ones with open/slotted doors and
ventilators on the ends of the cars?  
  Most of the pics of them I've seen have been pre-WWII ... when did they stop
being used?  What replaced them?
