One of the ads on the ties in front of the cars says "anti trust", possibly a reference to the American Tobacco Co (Duke family) which was broken up by the Feds in 1911.
The Duke family controlled 94% of the cigarettes made in the world plus chewing tobacco, textiles, tin, and hydo electric power (Duke Power).
