Guys -

Here are som nice photos from around Omaha in the 1924 to 1925 era.
The link was posted on the Railway Bull Shippers Yahoo group. I never
knew that the Old Dutch Cleanser reefers really had a prototype!

Interesting photos, A. T. Thanks for the reference. But you
obviously haven't seen the recent book on Billboard Refrigerator Cars
by Ed Kaminski and myself, in which several Cudahy cars with Old
Dutch Cleanser advertising are shown. The book points out that most,
if not all, cars with ODC advertising on one side had some other type
of Cudahy advertising on the other side, and also that ODC
advertising came in different forms; not al the cars that had it were
alike.
