As I understand it, only one of Stillwell’s oyster cars was ever built.

Hi Bob,

 

Perhaps it is a live fish car or a live oyster transport car. I have some vague memory these were discussed on this list in the past, maybe very distant past...

 

Somehow the term “Stillwell Live Oyster car” sticks in my head.

This photo can be enlarged quite a bit but I cannot discern the reporting marks.

Location: Chlopeck Fish Co. packing warehouse on Railroad Ave., Seattle
