A FRAMELESS TANKCAR —– IN 1926 !
This drawing was found as I was cataloging the elderly drawings in the UPHS collection recently. It caught my attention because it is a frameless tankcar drawing dated 1926. I was unaware at the time of the possibility of a frameless tankcar drawing existing in 1926. I do not know tankcar history well enough to make a judgment as to the uniqueness of this design, so I ask for comments from those of you who read this post. It is very likely someone out there knows the history of this particular design concept, at least I hope so.
