Poorly Secured Load?

Two 1952 photos of the same load from the Tacoma Public Library Digital Collections:

I was a bit surprised to see that this large storage tank load was only secured by two steel bands/rods. Even with the bottom blocking I would think a third band/rod would be needed to provide extra security should one of the other two fail.

Opinions?
