Filley, H.C. (1918). From car door to consumer (University of Nebraska Agricultural Experiment Station Circular No. 5)
The Nebraska College of Agriculture and the Bureau of Markets of the United States Department of Agriculture conducted during 1916 an investigation to ascertain the extent to which merchandise is sold from the car and the advantages and disadvantages of this method of marketing. The practice is so extensive that it was soon found necessary to limit the study to apples and potatoes.
