No: 585 Contributor: Marcel Gommers Year: 1931 District: The Netherlands Gebr. Nijman lorry on a bridge in Rotterdam Great shot of traffic in the 'old'n days' on a truss bridge. This is prob Rotterdam; the company 'gebr Nijman' was (and is) a removal company in Rotterdam (The Netherlands). Note the bridge on the right too. Someone able to identify these two bridges? Or any of the cars here?

March 10, 1949: The Santa Fe Railway Co. tries its hand at door-to-door mustard delivery. By November of the same year the company pulled the plug on the idea, as they could only effectively deliver to people whose homes were near the tracks, and they also found that people did not use mustard at the same rate as milk nor butter. So, obviously and famously, without missing a beat, the company removed the railroad wheels, repainted the trucks, and began delivering horseradish sauce. (Haw haw)
