What Kind Of Car Is This?

Just a WAG...........but the Arrowhead Water Company had quite a fleet of water cars for hauling "Mountain Spring" Arrowhead water from up the mountains above San Bernardino to their bottling plant on Washington Ave in downtown L.A. The trip was usually 100% on P.E. RoW. Arguing against this guess would be the apparent lack of trolley overhead wires.

This photo is from the Barringer Library, probably pre-1940:
Notice the freight car to the left. It appears to be a flat car with three vertical wooden tanks on it. But maybe it's something else?
