Description:

“Many farmers even in South Dakota where this photo was taken grew more than grain crops. Here small cucumbers are being loaded on a "pickle car" which will be hauled into Chicago by the C&NW to be made into pickles. The photo was made at the request of the C&NW publicity department sometime in the 1930s. "Squire Dingee" had pickling plants all over the Midwest in those days.”
