Description

A black-and-white photo of two men standing in a fossil quarry with a loaded wagon. The landscape view of the photo shows the quarry consisting of sculptured breaks. The wooden wagon is seen in the lower-middle section of the photo. The wagon is loaded up with already wrapped fossils. Behind the wagon are wood beams that help slide the heavy fossils closer to the wagon. In the center of the photo, above the wooden beams, two men stand posed for a picture. The man on the right has his hands on his hips and wears overalls. Excavation tools are littered before his feet (shovel, pickaxe, sledgehammer). The man on the left stands looking down at the wagon. George Sternberg provided a cursive inspiration 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." with the caption Chasmosaurus Quarry.
