Let your mind wonder where it may, but signs like these were used every day in large railroad yards to communicate to switchmen that certain cars contained fragile freight which were in danger of damage if they were "humped". Humping was a process of switching cars through the yard by pushing them over a hump or hill and allowing gravity to propel them to their desired switching location which in most cases ended in a sudden crash or severe halt.
