Day 86: Coal Chute

Day 86: Coal Chute

Today was opening day for my son's baseball team.  It was a long day  but at one point, I had the opportunity to take a walk into Carytown.  Carytown is a section of Richmond that is pretty arty and it attracts a pretty diverse crowd.  Now on my way to Carytown, I came across this coal chute on the side of one of the buildings. I still find it fascinating that urban residents had to have regular deliveries of this sooty material in order to heat their homes.
