Those signs were attached to any impressive load from Bethlehem Steel’s Fabricated Steel Division.  I cannot find the photos I have, but that exact sign was tacked onto Beth Steel’s fabricated girders and other products, as a matter of course.


I’ll keep looking for those photos.

That area is referred to as “Yard 7” in the B&M Somerville/Cambridge yards.

Inbound/outbound LCL and freight house, and (?)apparently where some meat reefers were transloaded.

The elevated structure at right is the MBTA “Green” line – WAY behind it is where the (current day) Museum of Science is located.


If you look at a current map, it is North/East of MA Rt 28 (Charles River Dam Rd.) and North/West of the Gilmore Bridge
