Artwork on the car probably was added in a darkroom.

Hi Bob,
 
Great photo, thanks.

If so, they did a really good job of it. Is there something specific you see that makes you think it was added later? To me it looks like it could go either way.
 
Even the horse cart is labeled “Scheuermann Brewery”

Copper Range had 3 cars painted for Scheuermann and 1 for Bosch.  Dennis Leopold published a 122 page Copper Range roster book with more information last year if you are interested in the line.
