Recreation car "Florida Special" with band members posing at its rear

Four musicians pose outside of a car in a rail yard. The car is named the "Florida Special". There are three men, two posing with guitars and one posing with a concertina, and one woman. Inscription on back reads: "The music of a three piece orchestra and a congenial foursome of bridge with the Recreation Car of the 'Florida Special' make its fast running time between New York and Miami seem even shorter during the 1930s."
