Description

This page is from George Sternberg's personal photo album. These black-and-white photos were collected by paleontologist George Sternberg. Above the photos, Sternberg wrote an inscription that says, Euoplocephalus quarry no 27 1914.” In the left photograph, Sternberg has drawn an arrow toward his colleague who is seen running down the excavation site. To his left, some excavation tools are propped on a ledge. Plant life is minimal around the quarry but thickens farther back. The right photograph shows the same excavation site after the explosion. White smoke is escaping from the crevice seen in the quarry. Underneath both of these photos are inscriptions written by George Sternberg describing these events.
