Description

This page is from George Sternberg's personal photo album. These black-and-white photos were collected by paleontologist George Sternberg. The left photograph shows Sternberg's colleagues and the hole that they mined in the side of a stratified outcropping. Two men are standing to the left of the hole. In the entrance of the hole, a large shovel is propped against the wall. To the right of the entrance, three pickaxes are propped against the hill. The right photo shows Sternberg's colleagues driving a team of four horses up a steep winding path through the hills. One man is standing in the wagon filled with fossil specimens and is driving the horses. The other man is running next to the horses. Underneath both of these photos are inscriptions written by Sternberg.
