Well, can't actually see coal, stove or flame, but my family history has a lot of connection to coal. Growing up on the waterfront, this passes for a cool coal picture in my family.

This is a picture of the Thomas W. Lawson. The biggest, and one of the last, of the great coal schooners.

My first cousin -four times removed on Mom's side of the family- was Captain George Dow, the Lawson's last Captain.

The ship was wrecked by storms delivering kerosene to England. As we know, coal is safer ! They should'a stuck with just delivering coal. :roll:

Thanks Fred.

Just one of the connections to coal that keeps turning up.

When I was a teenager I worked in a boat yard. Back then next door was a fuel oil company that had started out as a coal shipper. What was left of the two masted schooner used to ship coal up to the Boston area was rotting away on a hauling car next to our shop building.

When I bought my first house in 1979, it still had the original American coal boiler from 1922. It had been converted with an oil burner gun installed into the ash door and the grates taken out. The cast iron baffle plate inside the upper part of the fire box was burned through. I went to the local plumbing supply and they still had the plates. :shock: Still worked great at transferring heat to water. When I sold the place in 92, it was still in good shape.

When the oil prices jumped, I used a potbelly stove in the basement for a few years. The built-in coal bin came in handy ! ;)

Then, just by luck I bought this house, which had belonged to the towns' two coal dealers.

Coal just keeps following me around ! :D
