Re: Photo: Assorted Boxcars (NYC, MC, PRR & Wabash)
Duke’s advertising collection is quite good. My town of residence is pretty well covered, though unfortunately, there aren’t a lot of close-up freight car photos like this one.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Regardless, they are great for contextual details (cars, trolleys, roads, buildings and people) given that the billboard owners were trying to show how busy the location is. Lots of eyeballs!

I really appreciate all the photo links you are sharing from the 20’s. I will copy the billboard image from this link. Also will investigate Duke’s billboard site more.
