Hopedale Stable - The Bancroft Library can be seen
in the background on the right, and the Hose House
tower is in the background a bit left of center.
I've included the letter from Bill Barney below, because in contains
some interesting facts about Coal & Ice, and about his father who
was the manager of the company for many years. Barney, Sr., was
also an amateur photographer in the first years of the twentieth
century, and some of his photos can be seen on this site and in the
book, Images of America, Hopedale.
