Re: image of a bulk oil dealership

Great photo!
If you ignore the background, it already looks like a photo from a model railroad. Every thing is so neat and tidy- like a scene waiting to be super-detailed. 
Could this be a brand new facility? 
As to the barrels, could the be lined, and contain more viscous materials, like greases?

Hi List Members,
Nice image of a bulk oil dealership. Served by - you guessed it - steam era freight cars. Any thoughts regarding the date? The tank car, rail mounted crane, and the steel gons in the ditant background make me think 1920.
I note the use of wooden barrels at the oil dealership - I've never seen this before. Instead I always see steel barrels (drums?) even in the pre-1920 era.
This image would makes for a nice inspiration for a model railroad, don't you think?
