Unloading Bananas New Orleans, LA.

On the back:

“At New Orleans, the world’s greatest banana port, more than 700 ships arrive each year loaded, each with 25,000 to 50,000 bunches of this popular fruit. At the banana wharves the individual bunch is carried from the hold of the ship to the door of the refrigerator car on mechanical conveyors.”
