It would seem that new cars were at least kept shiny from the factory.
Are these Maxwells?
It looks like a 1911 Maxwell toolbox I have on the rear of one of those cars.
They sure look like Maxwells to me.
Shipped seven per rail car. Where they shipped complete with all the brass in place (and the little booty covers,) or did they put the brass on and then stage the photo?
Nice picture. Thanks for sharing.
