One of Reading's landmarks is The Orange Car, at the intersection of Front and Washington, on the other side of Front Street from Stichter Hardware and Schindlebeck's Coal Yard. Fresh oranges, grapefruits, etc. were brought here from Florida by rail (hence the name), and unloaded right from the freight car. The tracks in the foreground are the Reading's Schuylkill and Lehigh Branch, and
the Pennsy's Schuylkill Division, both continuing northbound along the river to pass by the Dana Parish Auto Frame Plant.
