What a great photo! And not just because it has an ERIE box car in it, “wrong way door” and all. 😊 It also has a couple of obligatory NP cars.
The older I get the older my freight car interest gets.

Photo: Freight Cars At Armourdale, Kansas City, Kansas
A 1915 photo from the Kansas City Public Library:
Caption: "Photograph of the Morris & Company (left) and the Swift & Company (right background) packing plants in Armourdale, Kansas City, Kansas. This vantage point faces south from the Kansas side of the Central Avenue bridge over the Kansas River. Morris & Company was once located where Interstate 670 runs just west of the Kansas River."
