John H. Murray & Son Coal Trestle

The historic John H. Murray & Son coal trestle, built around the turn of the 20th century for unloading railroad coal cars, is a rare instance of a wooden industrial building of this vintage that is still in use today. I had the unique opportunity to photograph this structure, completely by accident.
