Waratah - coal loaded directly into permanent bunkers.

The Dubbo Liberal, Saturday 8 January, 1910
What may have led to misgiving as to the stowage of the coal taken on board at Durban was the fact that as the vesselwas lying close to the wharf, it wasfound convenient to load it into thebunkers below (not the emergencybunkers), by means of shoots, openings of which were on the boat andpromenade decks.

I guess we'll never hear the end of this.
