They are UNloading this car, by hand into the wagon and truck in the background...  The caption information notes it is a car from Chicago.  I have records of 6 gondolas of manure shipped from Union Stock Yards in Chicago to a fruit orchard near Sturgeon Bay, WI in the late 40s.  The cars were unloaded in late spring on an industry lead in downtown Sturgeon Bay on 1st Ave...and employees of the time noted that the smell was horrendous, even after the cars were unloaded.  It was a one-time shipment, similar to a two-car shipment of horses in stock cars in 1949...all were so badly injured that they had to be put down.
