Coal Trestle Workers

 

sp trestle workers (700x589)

We sometimes forget how big the coal trestle was. In 1927, it was rebuilt and made larger to the tune of 800 feet long and 60 feet high. Such a structure required a large number of carpenters to maintain not to mention a couple of cooks to feed all those men. Here we see a photo of those men.
