Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday weekend. I have copied the link to

a c.1906 photo from Shorpy,

<> , showing a siding full

of new Merchants Despatch reefers. All of them look new with a *distinct

hump , floor to roof line*. Is this typical for this type of

construction? The older reefers down the track appear to have flat floor

lines. Thanks.
