    I fingered it out!!! I clicked on the link to have a better look, they transposed the date from 1931 to 1913.

    Bananas are still cut and loaded by hand onto trailers out in the plantations here in NQ. They are then off loaded onto hooks that carry them through a wash down before being sorted and graded. Also all done by hand. They do mark easily. You would never see them stacked as they are shown to the left of that rail car.

    The worker leaning against the girder on the right, looks like he could slip right off.
