Folks;

 

How were these racks used?  If for poultry, how unloaded?

Car is equipped with temporary racks for tomatoes for Campbell.  See The Keystone Vol. 17 No. 2 (1984) for more details.

Elden, my understanding is the racks were for transporting flats of tomatoes. No livestock involved. Certainly not poultry. Attached is an interior photo of the racks.

Maybe they're racks for tomatoes?


 

How about any other kind of produce?
