Photo caption: "Those responsible for the Havana coal dumping facility strike a rather unconcerned pose at Havana on July 1, 1933, the first day of operation for the plant. From left: R. W. Putnam, W. C. Hurst, Leathem D. Smith, John Gilchrist, William Short. Gilchrist and Hurst were the people who first conceived the idea, the other persons shown represent the Chicago firms which constructed the dock and prepared the harbor. Hurst and Gilchrist seem to have become camera shy."
