Re: Palace Poultry Car Color

Orthochromatic film would also explain this and it was still in use during the twenties. It did not capture yellow or orange well, rendering them a dark graytone. I've seen several Orthochromatic photos of Soo Line refers (which were the standard freight car red with orange sides) and they look completely FC red with no lettering other than the herald , which was white. The black lettering just blends into the sides, which look the same color as the ends.
