BOSTON, Mass.--Picture shows an excellent idea of the way in which the black diamonds [coal] are loaded into freight cars. The coal-conveying vessel, having tied up to the warf, sends up the fuel by passers to the proper place, whence it is dumped into chutes. From the chutes it is shot into long lines of freight cars on the other side of the wharf. 5/6/26. 1761 photonegative 1926
