    Just read about this again, This was Long wharf owned by the Boston Fruit Company. When the ship would arrive the banana's were taken off very fast. And these horse wagons were used to get the trains to deliver around New England.I read that the drivers were crazy of these wagons, and this guy was in charge of the traffic to get off the wharf asap
