It seems like the curved top style pie wagon was mostly a brass era thing. I have seen some non-brass examples. Lots are modern home made. Who knows when they were and were not popular? Thanks

Factory built Ford delivery vans were 1912 model year only.

Aftermarket companies continued to build variations of the C - cab "Pie wagon" body for not just Ford, but many other manufacturer's chassis. Dodge, Overland, Chevrolet, and many others had such aftermarket bodies installed.

This is not for pie, but illustrates a variation on the theme.

The picture Royce posted had the words 'from contented cows". I do not think the cows had a choice, they were going to be milked if they were contented or not.

This is a neat 4 dollar book that shows a lot of commercial T bodies. Someone who has it and some time could draw some conclusions for this discussion.

Willie, being a city boy I only know what I heard, but I heard cows are more contented if they are milked twice a day.

When I was in high school I worked at a dairy and we milked them twice a day. Most of the time they were content, but after milking they didn't want to go out if there was food left. Then they became irritable cows.

Carnation Farms started in Tolt Washington. Carnation told the city fathers if they changed the city name to Carnation they would locate their corporate headquarters there. It was a done deal. The town still named Carnation remains today , however the Carnation company has long since been sold and long gone.

As an interesting side bar just before he passed away Paul Newman joined with the present owners and a non profit to include the original Carnation Farms property in to one of his "Hole In The Wall" camps for children with life threatening illnesses. It remains that today .

just sayin'
