PFE Operations From Pete Holst
Below is a link to an article in Tony Thompson’s Modeling The SP blog. It covers a small part of two long interviews by Tony with A.L. “Pete” Holst, who worked his whole career for PFE, starting in 1917. He retired as Assistant General Manager for Car Service at San Francisco.
The interview, one of many with PFE employees, was part of the research Tony did for the book, Pacific Fruit Express, which he authored with R.J. Church and B.H. Jones. This is a “must have” book for modeling the Southern California citrus industry.
