Photo: Reefers At Michigan Central Yard - Detroit

A 1928 photo from the Wayne State University Libraries:

These photos load slowly but can be enlarged quite a bit.

Most of the identifiable reefers are either PFE or SFRD. Note the car number stenciling on the hatch cover of the PFE reefer in the right-center foreground and the reefer coupled to it. There is no stenciling on the PFE reefer to the left of the first reefer.

Comparing these three PFE cars, two have a platform surrounding the hatch cover, one does not.

More reefers, same location and year:
