Bob,

This is a great link, thank you for sharing it.  I know this is not your doing, but the 1940 date however is incorrect.  The 10,000 gallon tank on the right was likely built in late 1951 or 1952.  That car is typical of construction for hydrogen peroxide tanks built that same year - welded underframe, safety manway above the tank.  Because the tank is fresh, 1951/1952 would be the earliest date for that photo.

Best wishes,

David Lehlbach
