Photo: Loading Flour At Sperry Flour, Tacoma

A 1948 photo from the Tacoma Public Library:

http://cdm17061.contentdm.oclc.org/cdm/singleitem/collection/p17061coll21/id/18605/rec/505

This photo can be enlarged quite a bit.

Description: " Great Northern Box Car being loaded by Sperry Flour Company at Ocean Dock...A view inside the box car. Bags of flour are being moved by a forklift to fill the upper spaces in the box car. The interior of the freight car is lined with plywood and paper to protect the flour and meal being shipped."
