Description"

"...eight boxcars were ready to roll with 11,000 cases of pork and beans at the Stokely-Van Camp plant in Newport, Tennessee, headed to Merchant Distributors in Hickory, North Carolina. A Southern Railway logo on one of the cars was nearly obscured by an advertising banner and an oversized pork and bean can.

At the time, this half-a-million can order was one of the largest ever shipped to an individual customer from the North Carolina canning company."
