Coulee Dam Cement Boxcar
A kind fellow passed this photo along, taken in the yard at Skykomish way back in the late 1930s. Hoards of boxcars brought cement to the dam site. Some came from the west side of the state, as this car's location would suggest. Note the cement dust along the top of the car and door.
