Photo: Tank Cars, Anyone? (Undated)

Wonderful shot....two of my favorite things: early tank cars (I see some with the twin "L"-mount side-of-dome safety vents that pre-dated the top-of-dome-mount vents) and 1920s autos. So I would guess-date this sometime in mid- to late '20s.

I also see CONX reporting marks. And there are many automobiles in the photo. Perhaps
some can be dated ?

The high-walkway AC&F Type 7 is notable, as Shippers Car Line didn't become AC&F's leasing arm until the mid-1920s, so this and the Type 11 to its right predate that influence.

The billboard Conoco car behind the Type 7 has GATX reporting marks.
