1923 is fairly late for a safety valve elbow, but the dome is rather skinny.

6000-gal car, 173-gal dome, GA-built. 

There's a 1926 TROX 3-compartment car in Kaminski's tank car book with elbow valve, but no other examples from the 1920s spring to mind.  No other Class III TCX cars with the elbow in my folder either.  Curious.
