Soumigracht.

Discharging coal at Stormont Wharf, Belfast.
A bystander told me her cargo came from the U.S.of A. Not sure of the port but surely a dear bag of nutty slack ?

That'll be coal then if it's Wilmington, Delaware - but not if it's Wilmington, North Carolina! (?HUH)

Michael. I heard the same from another well known source so it must be true !
If it came from the Mountain Top removal in the Appalachian mountains it had a three hundred mile journey first by road.
Gulpers, it was coal and not big lumps.More like hard core.
