    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.
