  1. the teams of horses hauled ‘barrows ‘ of soil to the loader and then it was put on to the truck and hauled off. The horse and barrow method was used for many basement excavations

  2. This is one of ERIE’s unique gas powered shovels that replaced steam. It used compressed air for swinging and crowding. Weight: 22 tons. “A four man crew can do the work of 50 men.” Date: 1926 or so.

  3. Is that the Inman House, the large house on the right? It was the mirror of the Poulson House which remains on the south side of Powell.
