This was referred to as a MOOSE END because of the wording on it. Note also the two (rusty) holes near the top of the upper ticket. The new rolls were prevented from unrolling before use with a staple driven into the roll - in those days, all conductors carried a penknife which could be used for removing the staple, hopefully without dropping the roll in the process! http://ticketmachines.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=178849016 178849016
