Post Card: East Tennessee Packing Company (Selecto)
From the Knoxville History Project website:
Caption:
“Knoxville was once notable for pork, and in the season of Christmas hams, this week we’re sharing this ca. 1930 image of this once well-known South Knoxville plant. East Tennessee Packing Co. was best known for its store brand, Selecto. It was on the south side of the river, just west of Suttree Landing. Shared by Sam Furrow.”
I’ve seen several models of Selecto refrigerator cars but no prototypes. The models have green sides but the reefers in the postcard have yellow sides.
Does anyone have a prototype photo?

I think it is risky to trust these colorized images. Sometimes, of course, they are accurate, but I know of a number of them with wrong colors of buildings and railroad equipment.

All-

Probably the highlighting added was so the section of fence would show up when printed in a newspaper.  The real alteration was likely in the facts…the fence section looks to be about 10 feet long and it probably was a switching miscalculation rather than a “180 car train” careening into an industrial siding…

The streetcar tracks must have paralleled the siding as there is no evidence of one crossing the end of the of the building.

This photo was posted to the Lackawanna Facebook group this morning by administrator Bob Bahrs. Taken at Port Morris, NJ, date unspecified. The photographer, Mr. Barry, seems to have been the company photographer and was active during the early 20th century.

Looks like a fairly well maintained car. How long did these last?

Neat to see the PTC line trucks waiting to restore the trolley wire. (Philadelphia Transit Commission.)

Plus, it has the hooks under the frame for hanging the "Keely cans" for nursing a hotbox that the Q was fond of.

Moloco notes the axle length is 1.005" on their Code 88 semi-scale wheelsets.
