Hi List Members,
 
With the interest in poultry cars, perhaps this Live Poultry Transportation Company Memohead will be of interest.

Now we know why one of their poultry cars was named "Mudd".

Interesting. The Memohead must be post-1901 since it has an "Automatic" telephone number for the Chicago exchange.   Automatic Electric was related to the Illinois Telephone and Telegraph and the Chicago Freight Tunnel company and the phone cable justification for the 40' below tunnel system.  

Interesting early stuff for LPT and the seemingly early emphasis on shrinkage of slaughtered carcass.
