I noticed this picture in a collection of 1930s and 40s colour photos from the US Library of Congress collection published by the UK's Daily Mail. Click for a bigger version. The caption is "Part of the South Water Street freight depot of the Illinois Central Railroad in Chicago, Illinois, May 1943" but all I want to know is this - why does that PBR ad say "Blended 33 to 1"?
So What Does "Blended 33 To 1" Mean?
