Photo: Abraham Brothers Refrigerator Line (ABRX) Reefer

Photo from the New York Central Historical Society:

Cranstone’s list shows ABRX as assigned to Merchants Despatch Transportation Corp./Abraham Bros. Packing Company as of 1937.

Does anyone know more about the Abraham Brothers Refrigerator Line? Hinman’s MDT book (Page 242) has this same photo and notes that two cars were built for Abraham Brothers.

I believe the Abraham Brothers Packing Company was headquarted in Memphis, TN.

Thanks.
