Don't remember if anyone pointed out this photo of Delano's in the
Shorpy site after the discussion about blue flags being used in the
freight houses. Great photo. If the link does not work the photo is
called "Pabst Over Chicago: 1943".

Each car had two blue flags. Why was this? Were there maybe two
different crews/groups working and one wouldn't want to be in danger
relying on the other's blue flags in case one group left earlier than
the first and took their own flags with them?
