    1) "чёрная Мария", тюремная карета, тюремный фургон

    ...a minute later came the shriek of a siren, and round the corner came swinging the city's big patrol-wagon, the "Black Maria". (U. Sinclair, ‘Jimmie Higgins’, ch. VI) —...через минуту послышался вой сирены, и подкатил огромный полицейский фургон - "черная Мария".

    2) уст.; воен.; жарг. "чёрная Мария", немецкий дымовой снаряд ( применявшийся в Первую мировую войну)

    It is wonderful, the humor with which the English fellows take this messy business... The heavy shells which make an enormous cloud of black smoke they call "Jack Johnsons", because of a Negro prize fighter who is dangerous. Also they call them "black Marias" and "coal boxes". (U. Sinclair, ‘World's End’, ch. 13) — Просто поразительно, как англичане умеют сохранять юмор во всех случаях жизни... Тяжелые снаряды, которые разрываются в огромных клубах черного дыма, они называют или "Джек Джонсон", по имени негра-боксера устрашающей силы, или "черная Мария", или "угольный ящик".
