reefer roofs (was scanned slide 2)

No, it's a hallmark of the original (1920s) Murphy steel roofs. And thoughA wild ass guess: reefers had overhangs to allow salty water to run off
rather than collect on the top of the car side. If brine could destroy
bridges, it could certainly eat away at a freight car roof/side seam.
