Words just don't have the impact that a picture has! I made the same observation John, and I wondered how the crew boss reacted....when he saw the picture? It was 1890!I hate to see pictures like that, but it goes to prove what things were like then. Poor guys.
The tall worker standing right behind the crew boss, has "contempt" written all over his face and I don't blame him.
