Like the rest of the photos in the Great Big Photo Album of People Who Might Be Related To Me But I Don’t Know How, this one isn’t dated and there are no names or notes scribbled on the back. Still, I might actually know what’s going on here.

My mother had an aunt everybody called Lulu. She was married to the coal king of Green Bay, Frank Hurlbut. Several of the photos in the album are scenes from the coal docks in Green Bay. The guys in this picture are going into a coal mine. So, I have the sneaking suspicion that at least some of these guys could be employees of the Hurlbut coal company. One of the men in those coal cars might even be Frank Hurlbut. But that’s just an idea.
