The butcher`s cart at Cù` Dhèis, Balinoe, in 1903

Two coal puffers can be seen on Soroby beach in the background. Coal puffers delivered coal at strategic points around the island. If there was no pier, they would anchor off the beach at high tide then wait until low tide when coal could be offloaded directly onto horse-driven carts.
