Re: Pabst at the lettuce farm, 1931

Iowa was Ia.

As to the Pabst car, it's presence shows why the law we commonly call the "billboard reefer ban" was enacted. Shippers did not
like putting their product in cars that "advertised" another product. Am I correct in understanding many of the "billboard" cars
were leased and ran under the reporting marks of their own, ie URTC or GATC, and thus could be found loading products almost
anything where a reefer was needed.
