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.
