The box is to house a conveyor that extends out from the side of the ship to unload. There is one on each side.
It meant that there had to be a conveyor system on the land side to move the cargo away from the ship.
Newer self-unloaders have a slewing boom that gives them more flexibility.
This ship carried gypsum from Dartmouth, Nova Scotia to Newington, New Hampshire which had the appropriate shore facilities.
