Belize boat from about 1900, used for transporting coconuts

This looks like it's being unloaded in the Haulover Creek. The average coconut before husking is about 3-4 pounds. Expand the photo and you will see the nuts in front of the guys.

Back in those days the boats that brought coconuts could have docked at the wharf at Captain Foot's warehouse and discharged their products.

Below: View of the old Belize market and swing bridge, you can almost see inside Captain Foote's Warehouse.



Back in the days of Captain Foot only the coconuts had to have a certain size to be exported. The workers would place the coconuts on a ring, if it passed through the ring then the coconut would be rejected. The coconuts were tallied by fours and the workers doing the measuring would sing a little Jingle while other workers take the tally.

The Jingle : Mark 1. There goes 2. Mark 3. Full Tally.

The rejected coconuts were sold on the local market, two coconuts for 5 cents.
