Can anyone help identify this? It would have been used to haul water to and/or from a bottling plant at some point in the early 20th century.

I am also trying to identify the lettering on the Southern Pacific car in the other photo. It looks to me to be SP 55736 or something like that but I can't quite make it out.

Thanks!

Looks to me like it could be a street sprinkler wagon, such as this one:

Wow, I hadn't thought of that but it does make sense. Being just down the street from the bottling plant, I just assumed it was some kind of horse-drawn cart from the plant. Thanks for the assist and the photos. I'll check it out further ...
