6-Mast Sailing Bulk Carrier and B&O Coaling Doc

Steam Engines, Tractors, Trains, & More shared George Lane's post. The post had three pictures and the comment:
Here are some interesting pictures of the Curtis Bay Coal Terminal in Baltimore MD operated by the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. The pier was erected in 1900.



The wood dock is long gone, but it appears that this dock is one B&O asset that CSX has not torn up. They maintain a stockpile of coal. (A birds-eye view shows that the southern part is sometimes also full.)

They are actively loading a vessel. Is this a boat or a see-going barge? By the later, I mean will a towboat connect to the stern to push it? It doesn't look big enough to be a boat.
