I believe the wheel shown in one of the photos is of a paper centered wheel, a wheel more common than many STMFC'ers realize in the early part of the 20th century.

One fascinating bit of information in one of the two photographs is the backs of the wheels in the truck in the foreground.

Note that the ribs spiral in opposite directions. How many model wheelset manufacturers incorporate that I wonder?
