Is there any actual difference between the 'front' and 'rear' pairs?

Shimano catalogue 1996- "BR-M565E Cantilever brakes:All-weather M-System cantilever brakes use cartridge-type pads. Easy-Set design with automatic toe-in feature makes instalation and adjustment fast and easy. Available with medium or large cantilever arms to clear mudguards." 370g f+r

Judging from picture at CRC those are medium version if that is actual item.
Thanks!

So because of the automatic toe-in feature, front cantis won't be usable on the rear, then?

This not to be taken so seriously I guess.
I think that You (and I:)) will be fine for both rear and front.
Was using them front/rear and worst case scenario was to remove one canti arm for wheel removal (or deflating tyre so front wheel can go out/in) because fork legs did not let brake pads to open enough.

So the only difference between the front / rear is in the pads, I guess?
