In almost all of these very busy vintage photos there's some eminently modelable detail that has very little to do with the obvious subject. In this case it's the air compressor on the street to the right of the restaurant, and it looks like the kid brother of one we had in the family rental business. Swap out the engine for a six cylinder Ingersoll-Rand multifuel, make the compressor a compound with two low pressure cylinders in a 90 degree vee and a single high pressure cylinder between the other two, and put it on 6/70X15 wheels and inflatable tires - Bob's yer uncle. Browse all over and find other tidbits.

What caught my eye was the rounded corners on the reefer doors.

A very subtle amount of paint failure on this roof.

And the ice hatch supports. Never see those modeled. In addition to those rounded door corners, you can actually see the door itself. Most models are just the hardware mounted on the siding surface.  Is this a WFE reefer, or?

I believe it is a Fruit Growers Express.

Only at the rounded top. Square cornered doors, the top edge tends to get lost under the drip rail over the opening. Referring to the photo, the sides of the door are discernible because the car side has weathered differently from the door, likely because the bottom most leaf of the hinge barrel is on the portion mounted on the car side and the rain runs off that and onto the car side carrying a mixture of oil and iron dust wearing off the hinge, but the actual groove in the siding is the same width as all the rest of the grooves.
