Description

A black-and-white photo of a man reaching into a dirty bucket full of plaster to make a cast of the skull fossil of Chasmosaurus belli. The fossil is brighter than the rest of the picture due to the cast applied to it. A landscape view of stratified, outcropped rock borders the horizon from the top right of the photo to the center. A chunk of rock is behind the man and the fossil. A pile of dark burlap sack strips lie on the ground a foot away from the plaster bucket in the lower-left corner of the photo. George Sternberg provided a cursive inscription underneath the photo. Picture is also printed between pages 100-101 of the book written by Charles H. Sternberg - "Hunting Dinosaurs in the Bad Lands of the Red Deer River in Alberta, Canada."
