“Here is a detail from a larger photo taken on Pacific Electric tracks at Dominguez, CA, on March 6, 1917.

According to Santa Fe Boxcars 1869-1953 by John C. Dobyne III, it was built in 1902 with conventional wooden under-frames, truss rods and Chicago outside wood roofs. There was a door on both ends. A few of this class were on the roster until 1933.

Photo is from an unposted image in the collection of the Pacific Electric Railway Historical Society.”
